About Ellen

“F o r   m e,  I t’ s   a l l   a b o u t   J e s u s”
Ellen Harlow has enjoyed singing for many years. Her gift has allowed her to perform in states such as New York, Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee. This southern woman has made her home in Nashville, TN, Daytona Beach, FL and now resides in Morrisville, NC. She spent her childhood on a farm in a small community by the name of Darlington located in Eastern North Carolina where she dreamed of becoming a famous singer. Much to her surprise, the desire to become famous diminished and instead she speaks and sings for the sole purpose of giving praise and adoration to Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God.

Before giving her life totally to Jesus Christ, Ellen sang in nightclubs, Supper Clubs and Country Clubs. She performed for 10 years at Benefit Concerts for the American Veterans Association at VA Hospitals for National “Because We Care Day”. She holds the 1990 Local and State Championship in North Carolina for Country Music’s Songwriter/Vocalist of the year. Chasing a dream of stardom and fame always left Ellen feeling incomplete.  This well traveled and skilled vocalist wasn’t satisfied and found herself searching for something more.

Accepting Jesus Christ into her heart in 1991 gave Ellen a new lease on life, as well as an urgent need to share in song and testimony just what a relationship with Jesus means. While recording her first Christian solo, it was easy for Ellen Harlow, who sang Pop, Rock-N-Roll, Soul, Disco and Country, to draw from her musical background. Her soulful sound and heart felt lyrics are genuine and straight from a woman after God’s own heart.

“I have to feel every word I sing from the heart or it’s not worth doing,” says Ellen who describes her voice as ‘real’. “I want to sing and live in such a way that when Jesus returns I will not be caught unprepared. I long to hear Him say, ‘well done, my good and faithful servant’.”

Ellen has been singing for Jesus and giving testimonials to congregations of various Denominations over the past 25 years. She not only speaks to large audiences about her Savior, but she also shares Jesus with individuals on a daily basis. Her goal is to take advantage of every opportunity the Lord places in her path. “I just hate it when I realize after the fact that I missed an opportunity to share God’s marvelous grace with someone. I look forward to the day when I see Him. I will be like Him.”

When asked to highlight the most memorable moment of her singing career, she struggles to choose just one.  Ellen recalls one such time that she will never forget when her mama requested her to sing for her funeral. It was by His marvelous grace that Ellen was able to honor that request.  “It is my desire, to serve Christ with all of my heart and soul until He returns or I go to meet Him, which ever comes first. May He continue to use me in a mighty way for His Glory,” says Ellen. 

Heart of Jesus Ministries originated from Ellen’s heart in a desire to be more like Jesus and in recognizing that Jesus is the Heart of the Matter, not Ellen. The mission Ellen feels God has called her to carry out is to share through song and testimonials the awesome power of Jesus Christ. who is the Great I AM, who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3:20 Amen.

What People are Saying About Ellen

– I have loved having Ellen as a part of our worship ministry for 4 years now. Her love for our Savior and her deep rich voice have helped provide some awesome moments of musical worship at our church.

– I met Ellen a few years ago in Asheboro, NC where she was singing for the Christian Action League.  Since then, we had her on our radio program as well as Today’s Focus which is our 30 minute TV program.  Ellen is a blessing wherever she goes.  She is a lady of integrity and brings a good word to people about God and living a clean life. Pastor’s Dr. Harold & Susie Pope at Family Worship Ministries, An International Church in Troy, NC
– Ellen Harlow sang and gave testimony while Pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church in Carson, VA. It was a very moving service. I believe this was due to Ellen’s prayerful consideration in music selection. As Ellen sang, hearts melted. She takes the message of her music seriously and her intent is that the Lord use her for His Glory.  Her music appeals to diverse age groups. People sit in pews every week who, for one reason or another, walk away without feeling they have “connected” with God, or that they have not “engaged” in worship. God is using Ellen to reach them.  John E. Brownlee, Pastor Westmont Baptist Church in Johnstown, PA
