"I wouldn't be doing what I do today if it weren't for the music of Ella Jenkins... please help us get this movie made!"

- Dan Zanes

"We need this movie. It has to be done."


"Ella is one of the most influential musicians on the planet.

She's 90. We have to do this now."

- Ralph Covert

Known internationally as The First Lady of Children's Music, Ella Jenkins has been performing and recording her original songs for nearly 60 years! With over 40 releases to her credit on the Smithsonian Folkways label, Ella has stood peer-to-peer with the likes of Pete Seeger, Odetta and Freedom Singer and Sweet Honey in the Rock founder Bernice Johnson Reagon. Quite arguably the first artist to ever trailblaze a career in the now vast field of children's music, she has been recognized by ASCAP, the Library of Congress, and with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

With your support, we can make Ella Jenkins: We'll Sing a Song Together the definitive portrait of one of the leading, if overlooked figures in American music. We hope you'll help us bring it to the screen.
