Description

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017 marked the 100th birthday of the famed American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald. This landmark occasion is being celebrated all year by jazz artists and jazz lovers around the world.

In Tribute Jazz Productions presents the touring show “100 Years of Ella” starring Faith Amour. This is a knockout concert presentation of the riveting rags to riches story of Ella Fitzgerald, interwoven with Ella’s anecdotes, iconic songs and popular scats, and tells the full story of Ella’s life, loves and other mysteries.

Faith Amour will be joined by a stellar trio: Jim Ahrend on piano, Colin Deuble on bass and Arnaldo Acosta on drums... and a special guest musician…


About The Singer

Faith Amour is a vocalist on a mission to bring Ella’s timeless music and story of perseverance to the world during her centennial year – to 100 audiences from April 2017 to 2018 to be exact, through “The Centennial Project”. The project consists of 100 concerts, features and speeches across Canada and the U.S. She is an award-winning recording artist and composer who trained in upstate New York and started her jazz career in the Southwest United States. As an educator and a jazz vocalist, she intends to share the art of this jazz icon with young and old, to as many as want to hear it, even as Ella’s birthday continues to be celebrated by the Library of Congress, Smithsonian, as well as festivals, universities and performing arts centres around the world. The purpose? To keep jazz and the arts alive in our communities though funding gets cut, and to raise money for local charities who do work that change lives, following Ella's philanthropic example. As a former music teacher with the Santa Fe Public Schools, she has a heart for the children of New Mexico.

A portion of each concert ticket sold will go to help local Albuquerque children in financial need.
