“ Rich, tender, soulful…with sass and feeling''

The Telegraph review of her tribute Album to Billie Holiday The Lady Sings the Blues

She is also famous for turning down Donald Trump’s request for her to sing at his Presidential Inauguration by agreeing to do so only if she could sing Billie Holliday’s Strange Fruit, a remarkably soulful, beautiful and poignant protest song against American racism written in 1937.
