Happy Birthday Ella Fitzgerald!

Happy Birthday to the "Queen of Jazz," Ella Fitzgerald! An amazing, beautiful, and incredibly talented woman. She worked with many jazz greats, including Chick Webb, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Dizzy Gillespie, and Benny Goodman.

 During her 59-year recording career, Ella sold 40 million copies of her 70-plus albums, won 13 Grammy Awards. She was awarded the National Medal of Arts and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.


  1. I love Ella Fitzgerald! Thanks for posting so I can listen to some amazing music and break the boredom at work!

  2. You're welcome! I was listening to her music all morning. :)

  3. I love Ella's music so much! She's one of those artists I could happily put on at the start of the day and listen to until the stars came out at night.
