Description: "The First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald was arguably the finest female jazz singer of all time (although some may vote for Sarah Vaughan or Billie Holiday). Blessed with a beautiful voice and a wide range, Fitzgerald could outswing anyone, was a brilliant scat singer, and had near-perfect elocution; one could always understand the words she sang.

Celebrities Who Were Homeless (25 person items)

" Ella Fitzgerald is known as the “First Lady of Song,” but was the first lady of homelessness until she made it big.
