Ella Fitzgerald sang the blues and she sang them good. Ella and her fellas were on the way up! It
seemed like nothing could stop her, until the biggest club in town refused to let her play… and all
because of her colour. But when all hope seemed lost, little did Ella imagine that a Hollywood star
would step in to help. This is the incredible true story of how a remarkable friendship between Ella
Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe was born – and how they worked together to overcome prejudice
and adversity. An inspiring story, strikingly illustrated, about the unlikely friendship between two
celebrated female icons of America’s golden age.
