Ella Fitzgerald

Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996), also known as the "First Lady of Song", "Queen of Jazz", and "Lady Ella", was an American jazz and song vocalist. With a vocal range spanning three octaves (D♭3 to D♭6), she was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing and intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

When a body knows nobody, what's a body to do?
Shall she weep and sigh?
No, no, and I'll tell you why

Someday, there must come somebody
Bringing heaven in view
And so her courage, she must keep
As she sings herself to sleep

Somebody from somewhere
Will appear someday
I don't know just from where
But he's on his way

I'll just keep on waiting
Waiting 'till I see
Somebody from somewhere
For nobody but me

(instrumental bridge)

I'll just keep on waiting
Waiting 'till I see
Somebody from somewhere
For nobody but me
