Please limit your selections to three or four minutes in length (including patter). Please also bring clear, complete charts for Mark to read. Flash photography is not allowed.

All the tunes in this show are songs made famous by Ella but this is a show about how Ella spoke to and influenced Sue’s life and singing. Sue actually says that no one can sing like Ella so all one can do is celebrate her music in their own way and in their own voice. This is Sue’s celebration of this incredible music icon.
