Ella Fitzgerald - 'Summertime'

Changing the subject completely: Here's something to soothe and mesmerise simultaneously. I love Ella's voice, she makes it all seem so effortless. She allows the song to just be. The musicians hold back without overkill.
 Just. Beautiful.

Ella is my favorite female singer, and she is, without doubt, the best female singer of all time. No one can touch her.
