International vocal artist Thana Alexa was in the house with The Jordan Thomas Orchestra at The Italian American Civic Association of Vero Beach, 1600 25th Street, Vero Beach, FL, on November 18, 2017. There was not a seat to spare in the Bella Italia Ballroom at the club for the sold out Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, First Lady of Song, honoring the 100 year anniversary of Ella Fitzgerald’s birth in 1917. Like the Fitzgerald recorded song “Too Darn Hot” (from the 1956 album “Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Cole Porter Songbook”) sung by Alexa during the evening, this performance was a blazing ray of sunshine that left the audience uplifted and inspired. All positives were heard as guests took their time leaving the premises at the end of the show, many making an effort to express appreciation to the phenomenal vocalist, as well as to conductor Jordan Thomas and his talented orchestra members.
