The undisputed King and Queen of the Golden Era of Music. Vocalists Leah Guelfi and Justin Everette-Gross will take you through a journey of two giants of the 20th Century. Both following similar pathways throughout their career and coming together to perform duets on several high profile occasions. Frank is quoted as saying “Ella Fitzgerald is the only performer with whom I’ve ever worked who made me nervous. Because I try to work up to what she does. You know, try to pull myself up to that height, because I believe she is the greatest popular singer in the world, barring none—male or female.”
Hits such as The Lady is A Tramp, Come Fly With Me, A Tisket A Tasket, That Ol’ Black Magic plus many more. Follow two legends careers filled with anecdotes and relive the magic when they come together on stage.
