Dubbed "The First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century. In her lifetime, she won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums.
She could sing sultry ballads, sweet jazz and imitate every instrument in an orchestra. She worked with all the jazz greats, from Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Louis Armstrong.
She performed at top venues all over the world, and packed them to the hilt. Her audiences were as diverse as her vocal range. They were rich and poor, made up of all races, all religions and all nationalities. In fact, many of them had just one binding factor in common - they all loved her.
Join Maria Howell and the Noel Freidline Quartet as they present the best of “Lady Ella” from the hit that launched her “A-Tisket, A-Tasket,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me,” to “Summertime” and her raucous rendition of “Mack the Knife.”
