Ella Fitzgerald Tribute 25th April 2013

Ella Fitzgerald, whose great vocal range and perfect pitch won her the monikers "The First Lady of Song" and "The Queen of Jazz", has been commemorated in a Google Doodle, published on what would have been her 96th birthday. 

Fitzgerald was born on 25 April 1917 and died on 15 June 1996 at the age of 79.

In a career that spanned six decades, Fitzgerald recorded with other great figures including Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Louis Armstrong.
Her repertoire included jazz, show tunes, bossa nova and opera.
Recording more than 200 albums – with sales of 40m – and winning 13 Grammy awards, she is best known for her series of Songbook albums, celebrating songwriters such as Ellington, Cole Porter and the Gershwins.
