Take a gander at today’s Google Doodle, which features at tribute to “the First Lady of Song,” Ella Fitzgerald.

Ella Fitzgerald's Birthday

 

I first discovered Ella, when I was about 14 and I saw a PBS program about great artists during the war. I rediscovered her music in my mid-20’s when I created a “day in the life” video for my sister-in-law using Ella’s rendition of Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets (track 10) as a background track.

Surprisingly, Ella’s voice never made it into the backdrop of a James Bond intro, but she certainly has the voice, flavor, and style.

Take a moment today and check out some amazing music sung by the ever-magnificent and enchanting, Ella Fitzgerald.
