In the 1950s, Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play Hollywood's most popular nightclub, Mocambo, because of her race. Marilyn Monroe, who was a big fan, called the owner & told him that if he booked Ella, Marilyn would be there every night — which guaranteed huge press coverage. He booked Ella and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. Ella said, "After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”

Summertime from Porgy and Bess, sung by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, and written by George (and Ira) Gershwing. Porgy and Bess was written as an opera with blues influences, so I guess this still counts as classical, or at least classicalish.
