She Persisted: Ella Fitzgerald

Having lost her mother at a young age, Ella Fitzgerald struggled as a child, especially during the Great Depression. But after winning over the audience with her singing at an Amateur Night at the Apollo, Ella's career began. She had to fight prejudice but with perseverance, she would go on to become a world-renowned singer known as the First Lady of Song.

In this chapter book biography by award-winning and bestselling author Andrea Davis Pinkney, inspired by the best-selling She Persisted series, readers learn all about Ella Fitzgerald's pioneering life — and how she persisted. With short chapters, spot black-and-white illustrations throughout, and suggestions for ways that young readers can make a difference just like Ella, this is an inspiring read about a woman who always rose up against the odds.
