ELLA SWINGS WITH DOWNTOWN

Downtown Neighbouring Rights will represent the estate of Ella Fitzgerald for global performance-royalty collections outside the U.S. The deal covers the singer’s entire repertoire, including “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” “Cheek to Cheek” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing).”

“Her legacy as one of the most popular jazz vocalists of all time lives on and we are very excited to have it in such good hands,” said Richard Rosman, President of the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation, the nonprofit philanthropic organization that owns the rights to the catalog.

The foundation provides literacy, music education and access to housing, healthcare and related support services to at-risk communities.

Downtown established its Neighbouring Rights division as a stand-alone business unit in June. Downtown Neighbouring Rights recently hired Fintage House alumna Diane van Beekum-de Mooij as Senior Manager, based in Amsterdam and reporting directly to Dean Francis, General Manager of Downtown Neighbouring Rights.
