A Tribute to Billie Holiday with Cassandra Wilson
Presented without orchestra
Jazz vocalist Cassandra Wilson returns to the Schermerhorn for an evening celebrating “Lady Day.” Enjoy unforgettable songs like "Stormy Weather," "God Bless the Child," "I Loves You Porgy," "Strange Fruit" and more. There is no better singer to pay tribute to the music of the legendary Billie Holiday, whose 100th birthday is being celebrated in 2015. A two time GRAMMY® winner and Down Beat magazine's Jazz Vocalist of the Year for three consecutive years, Wilson has been hailed as "America's best singer" and "the true heir of Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn" by TIME magazine.
"A dream of mine is happening," Wilson says. "I've been in love with Billie Holiday's voice since the moment I heard it, and she has inspired me throughout my career."
