A chance opportunity to perform at the famous Apollo Theater catapulted Ella Fitzgerald into stardom to become one of the most popular and beloved jazz singers in the world. With vocalization and improvisation, Ella learned to use her voice as an instrument, and became the most recorded female in history, earning countless prestigious awards. Her foundation, the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation, provides aid to children and communities by fostering a love of music and reading. With her incomparable voice and spirit of determination, Ella Fitzgerald earned the title "First Lady of Song" and the adoration of fans across generations.

The included microphone makes her look like she's ready for a show! This set includes the doll, a doll stand, and a Certificate of Authenticity.
