Music Monday celebrates Ella Fitzgerald

Born April 25, 1917, Ella Fitzgerald, often referred to as the First Lady of Song would’ve turned 100 this year.

To this day, there is no other singer I’ve heard with a voice as pristine as hers.

In this version of Bobby Darin’s classic, she forgets the lyrics and improvises the entire verse. And she scats like no one’s business!

If this song does not put a swing in your step, nothing will.

Smile and have a great week. 😀
