No female singer evokes such emotion as Billie Holiday. The standard for emotive singing.

Billie Holiday was an incredible artist. She set the par for female vocalists in the 1950s and inspired many vocalists to come as well. Her songs were so real and so passionate especially for her time when usually the record labels ruled the airwaves instead of the artists. Billie had one of the toughest, saddest, lives I have ever read about and somehow she was able to get through all of the adversity and record timeless songs. I recommend the songs; Strange Fruit, A Fine Romance, God Bless The Child, Summertime, No Regrets, My Man, and When You're Smiling. She has so many more but those songs are a good place to start.
