Amanda King Quartet – Ella the early years.

Before she became the First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald was a young girl with a dream and determination who overcame extraordinary odds.

Acclaimed chanteuse and music historian Amanda King shares Ella Fitzgerald’s origins, inspirations, and music from the 1930s era and her time with the Chick Webb Orchestra in ELLA The Early Years, a swinging show of song and history! A classic chanteuse who performs standards and jazz, Amanda King has been hailed by The New York Times critic Stephen Holden as one of the nightclub world’s “exceptional rising talents” and is a repeat performer at the Mabel Mercer Cabaret Convention. Combined with her band of unparalleled jazz musicians, ELLA The Early Years is a heartwarming, joy-filled musical celebration of an American icon by a voice that was born to sing Fitzgerald!
