BILLIE HOLIDAY: A 100th Birthday Celebration

Born Eleanora Fagan on April 7, 1915 in Philadelphia, Holiday's early life included abandonment, reform school and prostitution. Finding her voice in Harlem led her to a brilliant career as solo and collaborating artist known best by Lester Young's name for her, Lady Day. Her triumpant and tragic life ended at the tender age of 44 but she remains the standard-bearer for jazz vocal and lyric expression rivaled by none.
