    Not many artists career span nearly 60 years, but Ella Fitzgerald is one of those exceptions to the norm. Throughout her storied career, Ms. Fitzgerald sold over 40 million albums of the 70 plus albums that she released. Add a Presidential Medal of Freedom and 13 Grammy Awards to that and one can see how she is on a different playing field. How do everyone think Ella Fitzgerald changed the way that women jazz vocalists are viewed in America?
