Ella Fitzgerald has been an inspiration to generations of listeners. A singer whose technical brilliance and "perfect" pitch entertained audiences around the world, Ella recorded over 2,000 songs and won thirteen Grammy Awards in her fifty-eight year career. She remains a top-selling recording artist and an indomitable figure in popular music to this day.

American Masters proudly presents the first comprehensive documentary portrait of the legendary singer Ella Fitzgerald. Narrated by Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald - Something To Live For movingly tells the dramatic but true story of an ambitious girl who raised herself out of poverty to become the most accomplished vocalist of all time. This definitive look at the "First Lady Of Song" chronicles Ella's entire career, from her amateur night appearance at the Apollo Theater in New York to her unparalleled success on the stage and screen. The film includes never-before-seen performance footage and interviews with many of the great musicians who worked with and admired this truly amazing performer.
