Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra were two undisputed masters of “The Great American Songbook.” During their storied careers, they appeared together several times on television and on stage. Great fans of one another’s work, their mutual admiration transformed into pure magic when performing together. Sadly, they never realized a recording immortalizing their collaborative legacy. Join Capathia Jenkins and Tony DeSare as they recreate some of that magic live. Featured songs include: "This Could Be the Start of Something Big," "Come Fly With Me," "Hallelujah I Love Him So", "The Lady Is A Tramp," "A-Tisket, A-Tasket," "New York, New York," and more.
