Ella Fitzgerald:  Celebrating 100 Years
This marks the 100th birthday of the First Lady of Song, Ella Jane Fitzgerald, born April 25, 1917 in Newport News, VA.  After an unstable childhood, Ella won Amateur Night at the Apollo at age 17 then joined the Chick Webb Orchestra where her reputation grew.  Her solo career began in 1942 and she became distinctive for her vocal versatility.  She received many awards for her life-long work.  WPFW programmer, Ellen Carter presents this lively presentation.  Free admission, light lunch, door prizes and great conversation included.
