    Paula Johns pays homage to the First Lady of Song, Lady Ella Fitzgerald, who is considered to be a notable interpreter of the Great American Songbook. In Paula’s new show you will hear music from the songbooks of Jerome Kern, George & Ira Gershwin, Rodgers & Hart, and yes, the most popular song that Ella herself wrote, “A Tisket, A Tasket”. Of course you will hear lots of stories about her big band days on the road with Chick Webb, her “love” life, and the many accolades she’s received throughout her vast career… and possibly learn a few things about Ella that will leave you saying…”I didn’t know that”… Not only can Paula swing, she writes and arranges her own music, does impressions of various singers, a great actor and comedienne! Foremost, Paula is an accomplished cabaret singer and jazz vocalist. She has received numerous accolades from audiences in Philadelphia, Atlantic City, New York and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Her sassy and animated interpretations of great Broadway tunes and the standards from “The Great American Songbooks” have earned her the reputation of “Songbird”. Ms. Johns manages to capture the era of the song while bringing it into the 21st century with her own unique style. Though often compared to Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn, she does bring her own distinctive panache to each song she sings. Her passion for the music ignites the emotions of her audiences and allows them to feel and hear the story that each song tells. “Paula really knows how to tell a story with the humor of Pearl Bailey, the sass of Sarah Vaughn, the elegance of Nancy Wilson and the voice of an angel!” – Evelyn Simms
