Loretta Holliday brings to life the jazz and blues music of the legendary Billie Holiday. During the 1930’s and 40’s, Ms. Holiday famously asserted her talents to raise the social and political consciousness of black society, including melodically protesting against domestic violence. Diana Ross portrayed her in the biographical film Lady Sings the Blues in 1972. Ms. Holiday was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.
