Ella and the King’s Christmas Sessions 2012 Benefit Concert for La Puente’s Hacienda Christian Fellowship


On December 15th , Hacienda Christian Fellowship congregation member and singer Ella Carrillo—along with fellow musician friends Ama Ramos Pipim, Bethany and Andre Lizama, Evan Gutierrez, JP Maurao and Uziel Colan—hosted the first annual “Christmas Sessions 2012” benefit concert. More than 200 guests came out for the night’s musical festivities at the Hacienda Christian Fellowship in La Puente , which  raised thousands of dollars that will go toward the church’s outreach ministries and charities.


Music performed by Azusa-based Ella and the King included Christmas classics, soulful Christian worship songs, Christian covers by Ella Carrillo and Ama Ramos-Pipim, an original song written by Bethany Lizama and family favorites of the band, such as covers of “Noche de Paz” and The Beatles’ “Blackbird.”


Video from the night’s event will be up on, as well as The Christmas Sessions 2012 album that’s now available for purchase.
