The "First Lady of Song," Ella Fitzgerald, becomes the 30th honoree in the popular Black Heritage commemorative stamp series issued by the U.S. Postal Service on Jan. 10.

The Postal Service will commemorate the new 39-cent stamp during a first-day-of-issue ceremony tomorrow at Jazz at Lincoln Center, New York, N.Y., when the stamp goes on sale nationwide. The stamp image is a portrait based on a photograph taken circa 1956 that captures the joy and excitement that Fitzgerald brought to music.
