She was known as the “first lady of song,” and although Ella Fitzgerald only lived in Newport News a brief time, the city adopted her as one of its first citizens.  Ella was the most popular female singer in the United States for more than a half a century.  She won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums.  Ella once said, “Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”

Come hear Ms. Norma Bass sing beautiful ballads, sweet jazz and reminisce about everything Ella! This is guaranteed to be a beautiful celebration of her music, life, and contributions to our American music!
