Ella Fitzgerald Artifacts At The National World War II Museum
The National World War II Museum reported that the Ella Fitzgerald Foundation visited the museum recently, and donated several artifacts from its archives to the museum's collection. Included in the donations was the above piece of sheet music for the popular wartime song, "Comin' In On A Wing And A Prayer." Sheet music covers often featured the image of the artists who were performing the song at the time, and since many different artists often performed the same song, there were often many different versions of the sheet music covers. I have a version of this sheet music in my collection, but featured by a different artist.
