Guests entered a world of jazz magic and listened to fabulous renditions of Ella Fitzgerald’s greatest hits. “The First Lady of Song” had her early start in the nightclubs of NYC in 1934 and soon after, became a national sensation. She could do it all, from sultry ballads to sweet jazz, and Candlelight celebrated her immense contribution to jazz and music with a stunning tribute at the stylish Williamsburg Hotel.
Although there is no upcoming tribute to the Queen of Jazz scheduled, “Heaven, you’ll be in heaven” also at the other Candlelight concerts taking place in the city surrounded by thousands of twinkling candles.
Candlelight Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald
To this day, Ella Fitzgerald remains one of the most talented singers in music history, standing out for her phrasing, impeccable timing, intonation, and a “horn-like” improvisational ability. Her insane abilities won her 13 Grammy awards and she sold over 40 million albums. She worked with all the who’s who in the biz, including Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Nat King Cole, Dizzy Gillespie and Benny Goodman.
Some of her greatest songs like “Cheek To Cheek”, “Oh Lady Be Good” and “A Foggy Day” were paid tribute to in Brooklyn. Located in the heart of Williamsburg, The Williamsburg Hotel is the perfect place to enjoy the vibrant neighborhood and take in the sultry melodies of Ella’s songs. This tribute definitely made audiences feel the presence of the Queen of Jazz, as the talented musicians of the sensational Lucy Yeghiazaryan Quartet took to the stage with the American-Armenian singer taking the lead.
Almost nothing compares to enjoying Ella Fitzgerald’s soulful songs by candlelight that evoke emotions and bring forth memories of love, heartbreak and joy. Whether you’re planning a romantic date, want to escape the busy city or have a fun night out with your friends, a Candlelight concert is perfect for an evening plan. But remember, “good things come to those” who hurry up and get their tickets now before they sell out.
