Ella Jenkins has been writing children’s music for an incredible 56 years, and this album, 123s and ABCs is her 34th release for Smithsonian Folkways. Ella has a swag of awards under her belt, was one of the first African American women to have a TV show (1950s ‘The Totem Club’) and kicked of the children’s stage at the 2013 Lollapalooza festival. Truly special!
