Description

Meet Ella Fitzgerald and discover the story of her life and work in this engagingly illustrated biography--narrated by the singer herself.

Sometimes called "The First Lady of Song," other times "The Queen of Jazz," Ella Fitzgerald was one of the most popular singers of the twentieth century. She not only worked with the greatest composers and musicians of her time, she won 13 Grammy Awards, received the National Medal of Arts, and the Kennedy Center Honors, and sold millions of records. Learn about the life of this incomparable diva, including her difficult childhood, her first performance in the famed Apollo Theater's amateur night, and the discrimination she had to overcome.
