Billie Holiday, also known as the Lady Day was a very talented jazz and blues singer during the Great Depression and beyond in the United States. She lived and coped during the most difficult times in the United States, especially when it comes to gender inequality, racism and discrimination. In fact, some of her songs were considered "protest songs" against racism. The most controversial song of Billie Holiday was "Strange Fruit," which both fascinated and embraced black feminism. Billie Holiday was the singer of the resistance for blacks during that time. It was very difficult for a woman to succeed during the Great Depression in 1930s. Often she sang for pennies to make the ends meet. Billie Holiday was very honest and open to her audience. She was mostly singing and producing albums for minorities, rather than the mainstream. Billie Holiday was "Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr." combined in the music industry. She embraced the pain and channeled it through her songs. It created deep and strong bond with her listeners. Billie Holiday (Lady Day) was one of the most significant jazz singers ever recorded. Again, her struggles and her pain can be heard in her music. She evolved from a typical torch singer into being a real innovator, singing songs about racism and injustice. Her life was reflected in her music. This what helped her to stand out from the rest of the musicians. There were times where Billie Holiday was more famous for her wrong doings than her true talent. She was arrested multiple times for possession of drugs. Her addictions to drug and alcohol often went out of control, making her professional and personal life a disaster. You'll learn more about this here. In this biography, you'll also learn into some depth who Billie Holiday really was as a person. What happened to her family?

From Julia Blackburn, an author whose ability to conjure lives from other times and places is so vivid that one suspects she sees ghosts, here is a portrait of a woman whose voice continues to haunt anyone who hears it. Billie Holiday’s life is inseparable from an account of her troubles, her addictions, her arrests, and the scandals that would repeatedly put her name in the tabloid headlines of the 1940s and 1950s. Those who knew her learned never to be surprised by what she might do. Her moods and faces were so various that she could seem to be a different woman from one moment to the next. Volatile, unpredictable, Billie Holiday remained, even to her friends, an elusive and perplexing figure. In With Billie, we hear the voices of those people–piano players and dancers, pimps and junkies, lovers and narcs, producers and critics, each recalling intimate stories of the Billie they knew. What emerges is a portrait of a complex, contradictory, enthralling woman, a woman who knew what really mattered to her. Reading With Billie, one is convinced that she has only just left the room but will return shortly.

Performing with jazz legends such as Lester Young, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, and Artie Shaw, she became a true American icon.
