Distinctive, innovative and beloved around the world, Ella Fitzgerald sang sultry ballads and swinging pop standards, earning 13 Grammy Awards and selling more than 40 million albums. It would be impossible to overestimate her influence on the next generation of performers. Many of them – including Patti Austin, Natalie Cole, Quincy Jones, Ruben Studdard, Nancy Wilson and Stevie Wonder – salute the First Lady of song.
