We’re not often inspired by budding musicians but if you take just a brief look at the life of jazz singer Elli Fordyce you might find something special about her.
At the age of 72, Elli Fordyce of Yonkers, New York is just getting into the swing of things with her singing career. She had been part of a jazz group in her early 30’s but a terrible car accident shook the group and it broke up within a week. Elli didn’t sing publicly again for 15 years.
She later found a voice coach and a few other guides and then, years later, saved enough money to rent two days worth of time in a recording studio. The studio was a joke, a small room that used coats and clothing as soundproofing!
She persevered, though – and the rest, friends, is history!
