2017 marks the 100th birthday of a true musical legend, Ella Fitzgerald. Ella is THE source of Regina's musical inspiration and Ms. Carter's forthcoming album and touring program will celebrate the music and spirit of this incomparable musical juggernaut through from her own perspective.
She explains her deep and visceral connection to Ella's music, an influence Regina has cherished throughout her life, “Growing up in Detroit, there was always music playing in our home. While there was a variety of music I enjoyed, there were a few artists I found consistently captivating — Ella Fitzgerald was one of these exceptions. To this very day, whenever I hear an Ella recording it grabs me at my core. I'm entranced by her voice, her melodic improvisations and the passion and artfulness with which Ella sings a song.
In a word, Ella is sublime, and she is at the top of my go-to list when learning a jazz tune. I'm so excited to celebrate Ella Fitzgerald, an artist who has meant so much to all the notes in my musical life."
