Billie Holiday by Roy DeCarava in the Photographs Dept.

Billie Holiday (Eleanora Fagan Gough), apodada Lady Day, fue una cantante estadounidense de jazz que nació un día como hoy, el 7 de abril de 1959. Junto con Sarah Vaughan y Ella Fitzgerald, está considerada entre las más importantes e influyentes voces femeninas del jazz. El crítico Robert Christgau consideraba que era «inigualable y posiblemente la mejor cantante del siglo» (siglo XX), y Frank Sinatra la consideraba «su mayor influencia»

Undeniably gifted and extraordinarily talented, Billie Holiday was one of the most important singers of the Twentieth Century. She sang and co-write songs that have become no less than jazz standards, like "God Bless the Child" and "Strange Fruit." She's inspired singers across genres and generations with her innovative, fully original vocals
