The First Lady of Song Miss Ella Fitzgerald. She's one of barely a handful of women that doesn't have to take a back seat to The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. Ella Fitzgerald is a true legend and a voice so beautiful that I'm she makes the angels jealous. Her tone so smooth that it could make Whitney Houston jealous and her ability to scat and improvise on a song so perfect that she could make Chaka Khan blush.
Ella has power, grace, swing and most of all she had soul.
