Candace - Summertime (Heyward/Gershwin)




Summertime was originally written by DuBose Heyward and composed by Geroge Gershwin in 1934. Billie Holiday first brought the song to top charts in 1936. I chose to do the Ella Fitzgerald version, first recorded in 1968. I love all of Ella's versions of the song because each has its own unique twist on the melody.
