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.

Women's History Post of the Day: Eleanora Fagan from Philadelphia, PA was better known as Billie Holiday aka "Lady Day". A famous jazz singer Billie Holiday has been credited with changing the art of singing pop vocals forever with the way she captivated audiences with the intense and personal feeling of classic blues. One of her greatest assets was the way she poured her heart and soul into every song and her ability to interpret a song and make you feel as if you never heard it before.

After the applause had died down, and the people drifted away She climbed down the bar And went out the door To the hotel That she called home It had greenish walls A bathroom in the hall ~ "Lady Day" by Lou Reed (1973 song about Billie Holiday from the Berlin album)
Billie Holiday (born Eleanora Fagan, April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959) was an American jazz singer and songwriter.

Billie Holiday *Absolutely the greatest female Jazz vocalist of all time
Billie Holiday- Lady Day- was one of the most important singers of the last 100 years, and also stands out as a fashion icon. Her signature style is elemental: a white, oversized gardenia tucked behind the ear, big bracelets or jewelry and a bodacious, glamorous dress.
