Billie Holiday

 (born Eleanora Fagan April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959)

 was an American jazz singer and songwriter.

Nicknamed “Lady Day” by her friend and musical partner Lester Young, Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo.
