Description


Billie Holiday: Jazz Singer is a full-length biography about Billie Holiday, known famously as Lady Day, from her birth in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to her childhood in Baltimore, Maryland, through her 30-year career as a singer, actor, and author by Meredith Coleman McGee. The late great Lady Day became the defining voice in jazz in Harlem, New York in 1933. Her 1939 recording of the protest song, Strange Fruit, made her a superstar, a race woman, and a target of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics. Though Billie Holiday passed over 64 years ago, her musical influence is wide reaching, and her legacy is everlasting.
