FITZGERALD, ELLA (1917 - 1996)
Ella Jane Fitzgerald “Lady Ella”

Ella Jane Fitzgerald was born in Newport News City, Warwick County, Virginia, on 25 April 1917. During her early childhood she and her siblings were abandoned by their truck-driver father to the devices of their laundress mother, Tempie, but despite poverty and less-than-equal odds, Ella stayed cheerful. A member of her school glee club, she also sang in the Bethany African Methodist Episcopal Church Choir, soon mastered the piano and listened avidly to the radio where she heard – and learned by heart – all the latest tunes from the Boswells and her hero Louis Armstrong.

Throughout her long career, her interpretative instinct never deserted her: elegant yet spontaneous, she became Number One among jazz-singers, although she vehemently rejected so restricting a label, seeing herself in the broader rôle of ‘singer of popular songs’. Whatever the repertoire, however, scat or ballad, none can outshine her innate sense of rhythm, technical security and identification over such a wide range of styles.
