How did Ella Fitzgerald get famous?

It was Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater and she was going to be a dancer. Then she got up on stage and she changed her mind and knew she couldn't dance in front of all those people. She had won the opportunity to do that so the judges said 'well do something' so she decided to sing. Her music influence that she tried to sing like was Connie Boswell. She talks about this in an interview she did on an episode of "Oscar Peterson & Friends".

On which Ella Fitzgerald album did she sing the song Fever?

I hate to bring bad news, but Ella never recorded "Fever" before - so far (who knows, someday somebody might find rare recordings of hers in a basement or something) For some mysterious reason, "Fever" vocals are commonly misattributed to Ella (as Louis Armstrong's are in "As Time Goes By"). Who sings it, indeed, is Peggy Lee.
