Andra Day’s performance was absolutely masterful, and to add this sound track is incredible! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
Andra puts her own spin of classics of Billie while also keeping the soul alive of this legend.
Billie Holiday has sanctioned Audras performance and this story from above...Miss Holiday is smiling down from heaven say “finally someone has told my True story.”... Obviously anyone talking about blacks being racist has never lived in a black persons shoes...As far as music Miss Billie would buy the Album herself✌🏾
Sounds like Lady in the 50s
She’s giving us Lady on the late 50s !

This is pretty good. No problem with it. But I don't understand why people would buy a pretty good imitation when the actual records by the actual Billie Holiday, which are fantastic, are available on iTunes too. She's my favorite singer, and it baffles me why people are more interested in someone pretending to be her.
Billie Holliday a talented singer was sad and compelling. She could be now. Child abuse. Spousal abuse. Rape. Drugs. Left me disappointed with President Kennedy who allegedly gave the FBI agent who framed her for many years a coveted award.
A major applause for Andra Day. What an achievement. This album, everything about it is spectacular. She couldn’t have captured the essence of Billie Holiday and more than she has.
This is a must for anyone’s music library.
Amazing ... maybe u can take a ride in the red impala again this time with me next to ya @me
The U.S. vs. Billie Holiday
Mz. Day, you are a great talent but Billie's been done.....By Billie herself. It's like all of these guitarists doing Jimi Hendrix. What Billi and Jimi created was theirs. There's no point in replication. My hope is that you don't go down as just another wannabe. You have too much ability for just this.
