Through slideshow and musical performance, Nanette Perrotte presents the story of a young woman who, against impossible odds, achieved fame as a jazz singer by the age of seventeen at the heart of the Harlem Renaissance and American Jazz.  Referred to as the First Lady of Song and the Queen of Jazz, this is the story of Ella Fitzgerald.
