Concert: The Songs of Billie Holiday

Sunday, February 2, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

Demetria Joyce Bailey performs the songs that Billie Holiday loved to sing including hits such as “God Bless the Child” and “Lover Man” and lesser-known selections from Lady Day including “Gloomy Sunday” and “Did I Remember.”

Bailey, an actress on the stage and screen, possesses a powerful vocal range and sings old-school jazz and blues in the tradition of  Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan.

Holiday was a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing. Her vocal style, inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo and she was admired all over the world for her deeply personal and intimate approach to singing.
