Jazz singer Ernestine Anderson dies | KIRO-TV

She died Thursday night in Seattle surrounded by friends and family, says Vivian Philips, a spokesperson for the family. 
Anderson moved to Seattle with her family when she was 16-years-old. She was born in Houston.
She started singing when she was 3-years-old, Philips says, singing along to her parent’s blues records.
Anderson gained notoriety in the early 1940’s, singing alongside Russell Jacquet, Eddie Heywood, Shifty Henry and Johnny Otis.
Anderson performed with a Seattle contemporary and fellow Garfield High School graduate Quincy Jones, another famous black American musician.
