'ELLA', is a compelling show about the life and music of the first lady of jazz, ELLA FITZGERALD.
Ella’s voice is world renown, but her life remains a mystery to many. This original production, scripted and performed by internationally-acclaimed singer SANDI RUSSELL, with her trio, offers fresh insights into this great popular singer, through Ella’s own words and those of her family and fellow musicians.
Harlem-born Sandi first learned of Ella through her parents, who met at the famed Savoy Ballroom, when Ella was singing. When Sandi heard her in person, Ella's voice and presence were a revelation - she inspired Sandi to become a jazz singer.
