Synopsis by Alice Day
Ella Fitzgerald was called the First Lady of Song, and in the film Biography: Ella Fitzgerald - Forever Ella, viewers have an opportunity to see how she got the title. She created her own niche among jazz singers, and has been acclaimed as the best scat singer of her time. This musical tribute features footage from concerts and comments from friends and from Fitzgerald herself. Fitzgerald performed with some of the top bands and musicians of the era, and Frank Sinatra said she was the greatest singer he ever heard. Her distinctive voice and tremendous showmanship are documented in this A&E double-length portrait.
