Ivan Ellis will take the World Stage at the African Festival of the Arts in Chicago

August 30, 2013 - - - Ivan Ellis is making noticeable strides in the music world. Recently, he was added to the all-star line-up at the 24th annual African Festival of Arts held at Washington Park over Labor Day weekend in Chicago. Ivan will soothe the crowd of festival goers with 45 minutes of rhythmic soul music on Sunday, September 1st. In addition to his original music and a couple of popular favorites, he is set to perform his heartfelt tribute to Trayvon Martin, “Black Hoodie”, which has humbly received a great deal of attention since released last month.

As an artist, Ivan finds comfort in performing on a platform created to celebrate artistry and individualism. “Music is my art. I aim to create meaningful music that evokes emotions. I want to use every opportunity to connect with people and through that I feel I can make a difference” Ivan explains.

Landing the spot on the World Stage at the African Festival is a huge milestone for Ivan. “Living in Chicago, I have attended the African Festival of the Arts in the past to enjoy art, music, and culture. Now, I am one of the entertainers delivering the music that so many will come to hear. I am honored.”

Since signing with Dreamer Management, Ivan has been in the fast lane. Last month he shared the stage, at the historic Howard Theater in Washington, DC, with LeToya Luckett and Orlando Dixon. He has been featured on various online blogs as well as ABC News Channel 8 “Let’s Talk Live” that airs weekly in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. Ivan is currently working on new material to present to music industry spear heads in pursuit of a major recording contract. In addition to performing and writing music, Ivan plays the drums and the piano. He is also an aspiring actor and landed his first lead role in the soon-to-be released movie, “You & Me”.
