Ella Fitzgerald

Despite the well-known fact that Fitzgerald loved children, the combination of a busy touring schedule and short-lived relationships accounts for why she never had any of her own. Still, Ella was a surrogate parent to hundreds of kids through her Ella Fitzgerald Child Care Center, which she established for underprivileged kids in 1977.
