I never get tired of this photo.
Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at Mocambo because of her race. Then, one of Ella’s biggest fans made a telephone call that quite possibly changed the path of her career for good. Here, Ella tells the story of how Marilyn Monroe changed her life:
“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”

I will never judge a person by the way they speak for the rest of the week. Seriously, though, we need more people like this in this world.
Respect for you man. You understand life.
Shit man. This dude has it figured out.
ALWAYS RE-BLOG. This is how all humans should act
I have so much respect for him, the world needs more people like him.
All of them were shot and killed for wanting peace.
