Billie Holiday (April 7, 1915 - July 17, 1959), born Eleanora Fagan and later called Lady Day, was an American singer known equally for her difficult life and her emotive, poignant singing voice. Holiday has long been considered one of the greatest jazz voices of all time. She made extensive recordings with Columbia, Commodore, Decca and Verve Records. The importance of her music and her influence were only truly realized after her death.
