Ella Fitzgerald Biography

I saw this short Ella Fitzgerald biography recently. She is one of my favorite vocalist of all time. It’s a great read with images and I wanted to share it with you.

I’ll be releasing my second CD of “EllaTunes” soon.  I had so much fun and I’m grateful for the opportunity to put my own spin on Ella’s greatness.

Happy Birthday Ella!

Ella Fitzgerald: the first lady of song

Today marks 100 years since the birth of Ella Fitzgerald. ‘Lady Ella’ burst onto the Harlem music scene in the mid-1930s after winning a talent contest at the Apollo Theater. She was a 15-year-old street performer living rough at the time. She went on to become one of America’s most highly acclaimed music stars and changed the jazz world forever
