Staci Sings Ella
Introducing "Staci Sings Ella," a YouTube series celebrating the legacy of iconic jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald.
Launched on January 15, 2017, "Staci Sings Ella" will cover 100 songs from the First Lady of Song leading up to her centennial birthday celebration on April 25, 2017. Selections throughout the "Staci Sings Ella" project will include both live performances as well as some of her most popular recordings from The American Songbook, her time with the incredible orchestras and ensembles of Count Basie, Marty Paich, Oscar Peterson and more. We will celebrate her work with Decca as well as the incredible catalog created with long-time collaborator and manager Norman Granz on Verve.
Please join me on this journey as I create 100 songs in 100 days celebrating 100 years of Ella. Follow along, tune in, and subscribe to "Staci Sings Ella!"
