Ella Fitzgerald has been called the "First Lady of Jazz" and some have labeled her the "First Lady of Popular Music" of her times.

She became to great prominence when she began performing and recording songs from the great "American Popular Music Songbook" ~ Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Victor Young, Duke Ellington, the Gershwins, Johnny Mercer and many others.

The Question is who do you thing was more influencial ~ Miss Billie Holiday or Miss Ella Fitzgerald in their times?
