"If I'm going to sing like someone else, then I don't need to sing at all" - Billie Holiday

She was one of the most influential jazz singers of all time with a voice unparalleled in the industry. Set in 1959 in South Philadelphia, Billie Holiday takes the stage for one of her final performances before her untimely death. Featuring some of her most famous songs like "What a Little Moonlight Can Do", "Strange Fruit", and more and interlaced with stories of her life, Lady Day tells her story of racism, abuse, and addiction - all for the chance to sing.
