    Oh Norma Jean. “I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt…it was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him - and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status - that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman - a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.” — Ella Fitzgerald

    #MarilynMonre #Ellafitzgerald. The 50s Mocambo nightclub wouldn't book Ella because she was black. Ella had a powerful & unlikely benefactor Marilyn Monroe. “I owe Marilyn a debt. Because of her I played there. She called the owner, & told him she wanted me booked immediately. She took a front table every night. The press went crazy. I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was a woman, ahead of her time & she didn’t know it.” Ella Fitzgerald

    Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at the popular Mocambo, in Hollywood, because of her race. Marilyn, who loved her music and supported civil rights, called the owner of the Mocambo and told him that if he booked Ella immediately, she would take a front table every night. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. After that, Ella never had to play in a small jazz club again. “She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.” - Ella Fitzgerald about Marilyn Monroe
