My twelfth love

I don't know why people think they have to rate singers. Ella has been described by many as the greatest jazz singer of them all. I don't care. She has a beautiful voice. You can feel her elegance in every phrase. She had such a difficult childhood it's hard to understand how she survived let alone become the beautiful woman she became. One of her band leaders said that in her youth she was a diamond in the rough. Listen to this
