The Ella Fitzgerald Competition

The Ella Fitzgerald Competition was founded on April 25, 2017 to honor the centennial birthday of America’s “First Lady of Song”. Over the past four years the competition has grown exponentially in size and stature. This year’s event will acknowledge the cultural contributions of American singer, composer and lyricist Johnny Mercer. Please join our five finalists as they pay tribute to both of these amazing American artists in song and in awards.
