The First Lady of Song

When Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, or Miley Cyrus can do this, let us know. We'll be watching the skies for airborne pigs. (No, not Fergie on her private jet.)

ELLA FITZGERALD
April 25, 1917 - June 15, 1996

  2. Ella was magic - so sad that her health declined so horribly at the end of her life - terrible way to go -
    your post reminds me also of the incredible talents of Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughn who really knew how to get a song across, as did Ella, and did it time after time with consummate artistry and musicianship -

    Now I am going to spend some time with my old vinyls on the old turntable and let the rest of the world go by -

    Thanks for this post -
