Remembering The Sensational Billie Holiday

Apr 26, 2016

You can find the plaque honoring Billie Holiday on the Broad Street sidewalk between Walnut and Spruce streets in Center City.

Jazz great Billie Holiday, who died at age 44 in 1959, was posthumously inducted into the Philadelphia Music Alliance Walk of Fame on October 26th.  Lady Day would have turned 100 on April 7, 2015

As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, in her short career, this Philadelphia-born singer made a huge impact on jazz and American song.
