Billie Holiday (April 7, 1915 in Philadelphia – July 17, 1959 in New York City) was an American jazz singer from New York City, who is considered one of the most important performers of the genre.
Billie Holiday spent a turbulent childhood in Baltimore, Maryland and moved to Harlem, New York at the age of fourteen. Influenced by jazz and R&B greats such as Louis Armstrong and Bessie Smith, she began singing in nightclubs in her early teens, where she was discovered by producer John Hammond. Impressed by the young woman’s untrained yet virtuosic and distinctive vocal style as well as her ability to improvise vocally, he organized a recording session for her in 1932, which led to her first hit – “Riffin’ The Scotch”. In the late 30s, some of Holiday’s songs were already sung by various musicians throughout the country. The peak of your success
the singer reached her peak in the 40s, for example, when she played the largest concert in the history of the legendary Carnegie Hall in New York at that time.
Billie Holiday had a nearly 30-year career behind her when she died in 1959 as a result of her decades-long substance abuse. With songs such as “Strange Fruit” and “God Bless The Child”, she wrote tracks that are now considered jazz standards. Frank Sinatra described her as the most important influence on his own music.
