Welcome to the Foundation

Here at Ella’s Foundation, we are mourning the loss
of Ella’s friend and co-composer


(Don’t be confused, Van’s birth name was “Al Feldman”, but he
was advised to change it if he wanted to succeed in the music business.)

Van left us this week, age 100.

May his music and his memory be blessings to all.

Donations in Van’s memory may be sent to us via the DONATE button, we will
inform Van’s family of your thoughtfulness. (That’s Van’s daughter in the
photo, along with Tony, from the Smithsonian)

Ella has an official Facebook Fan Page and we’re
getting close to two million fans!
