TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE: JAZZ`S FIRST DIVA: BILLIE HOLIDAY: In her difficult early life, Holiday found solace in music, singing along to the records of Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong. She followed her mother who had moved to New York City in the late 1920s and worked in a house of prostitution in Harlem for a time. Around 1930, Holiday began singing in local clubs and renamed herself "Billie."

Billie Holiday: Strange Fruit Rare live performance of this powerful protest against racism and white terrorism.
Rare footage of Billy Holiday's Strange Fruit, a chilling and important song about black oppression in the South...oh Billy, what an amazing voice, what ability to paint such a horrific picture in such a subtly painful way (she doesn't use overt language to talk about racism). Thank you!
Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit "Strange Fruit" performed most famously by Billie Holiday, who first sang and recorded it in 1939. Written by a teacher Abel Meeropol as a poem, it exposed American racism, particularly the lynching of African Americans. Meeropol set it to music and with his wife and the singer Laura Duncan, performed it as a protest song in New York venues, including Madison Square Garden.

Billie Holliday. " If you copy, it means you're working without any real feeling. No two people on Earth are alike, and it's got to be that way in music or it isn't music."
Billie Holiday cambiaba los tonos para ajustarlos a su forma de entender el jazz y le quitaba las líneas rectas a las canciones. Billie Holiday by Dennis Stock, 1958.

I have the ability to sing with emotion and feeling, but if you say I sound like Billie Holiday, that's cool. Let's look at who Billie was: she was this person, this singer, this beautiful diva who could move the audience with the slightest gesture of her hand. ~ Erykah Badu / Photo: Billie Holiday, 1946

Billie Holiday (photo by Michael Ochs Archives .01 Dec 1946), (born Eleanora Harris, April 7, 1915–July 17, 1959) was an American jazz singer/songwriter. She had a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo. She co-wrote only a few songs, but several of them have become jazz standards, notably "God Bless the Child," "Don't Explain," "Fine and Mellow," and "Lady Sings the Blues."
