What You'll Get
The Apollo Theater goes from Harlem to Hollywood for one special night in celebration of Ella Fitzgerald's centennial birthday. The legendary First Lady of Song was the first female performer ever to win the Apollo's amateur contest at the tender age of 17 -- and it also happens to be where R&B songstress Patti Austin made her childhood debut as well. Though Austin may be best known for her '80s soul-pop hits "Baby, Come to Me" and "How Do You Keep the Music Playing" with James Ingram, she's since segued into a career as one of the country's most sought-after jazz singers, winning a Grammy for her 2008 disc Avant Gershwin and releasing her own best-selling salute, For Ella, which includes favorites like "Satin Doll," "Miss Otis Regrets," "The Man I Love" and "A Tisket, A Tasket." She's set to be joined under the stars at the Ford Theatres by fellow vocalists Monica Mancini and Ledisi under the direction of Grammy-winning producer Gregg Field, Fitzgerald's former drummer.
