Ella Fitzgerald, not just a jazz vocalist, Ella is the name of the "first lady of jazz" Armstrong, Goodman, Ellington, Peterson voted for Ella's candidacy for the title of "Best World Singer". When asked who to submit to this title, Frank Sinatra replied: "Why are you asking, of course, Ella." Crosby said: “Only she! It doesn’t matter from whom to choose - men, women or children ... ”
