What famous vocalists have been influenced by Ella Fitzgerald?

I am doing a report on Ella Fitzgerald, though I can't find the names of anyone who she has influenced. If you can find a few names, that'd be great. the more well known, the better, and putting links to the websites you find them would be amazing. Thank you. :)
