Sepia Soul: Happy Birthday, Billie Holiday

In honor of Billie Holiday’s birthday (April 7, 1915), I’m sharing a few of her songs that are favorites of mine. I don’t listen to much jazz, but her voice was so unique and beautiful, I think everyone who ever encountered it must love it.

Billie Holiday often performed and was photographed with white gardenias in her hair.

  1. She was incredible! The sad, soulful voice of a Depression Era Generation, but most definitely the voice of the downtrodden. There has been no other that could reach the highs she did in her lows yet.
