This video captures two important things. The first is the song Silent Night, written by Franz Xaver Gruber, about the night of Jesus Christ's birth, and the second is my first attempt at quartet singing after my hemiglossectomy (half-tongue removal). I am so glad we c...

Today I'm sharing a way to improve your confidence with one simple trick: flipping the script! To put it simply, "flipping the script" is when you catch a negative thought in your head and turn it into a positive--literally "rewriting" your mindset, and ultimately your...

Getting cancer, suffering a loss, or feeling "different" tests our faith. We always have a choice between faith and fear, and it's rarely just one or the other. A journey through a rough season has many stops along the side roads of fear, as we move towards faith. In t...

When the spaghetti sauce hits the fan (and it WILL hit the fan, eventually!), we can easily fall prey to playing the victim. How do we stop the "poor me" mentality? Even when legitimately bad things happen to us, we must never allow ourselves to wallow in self-pity--it...

Even though I had a partial glossectomy (had half my tongue removed), I'm going to teach my mom some basic Italian words for beginners! It's been a little over a year since my cancer treatment finished, and now it's time to test out my language skills and exercise my t...

Welcome to my first question and answer video! I pulled the questions from handwritten letters I received from the 6th grade students Odessey Institute, where I recently gave my youth program. I filmed this before I traveled to Arizona to speak to them in person, so I...

The act of "letting go" can feel impossible when the stakes are high .😰 Yet faith says that we need not fear: God is driving the bus. Our job is to keep on doing good work, cultivating patience, taking care of ourselves first, and consistency. If that thing we want so...

Who is Elly Brown?

Elly Brown is a freelance performer and writer living in Las Vegas. In May of 2018, she had a life-altering surgery for oral cancer that completely changed the direction of her career. 


Before having a radical neck dissection, she sang with the acappella group, The Sound Collageand worked as an on-camera host and model.  She recently starred in the indie film Alien Domicile, which you can watch on Amazon.com, and appeared in episode 1 of Hidden Vault Films' fan film production of Rise of the Catwoman, for which Elly won a Maverick Movie Award for Best Actress, alongside Lee Meriwether--the original Catwoman--who won for Best Supporting Actress. 


In spite of her changed face and voice, Elly is determined to continue following her dreams--and through her Facebook and YouTube videos, inspire thousands of others with physical challenges to do the same. Even in the face of a second diagnosis--breast cancer (the same week she lost her father to pancreatic cancer) she remains determined to make her obstacles her victories.


Elly is continuing to sing, act, and even deliver speeches, using what happened to her as a way to connect to all people who have faced obstacles.
