Biografia

Eleanora Fagan Gough (Philadelphia, 7 de abril de 1915 - Nueva York, 17 de julio de 1959), Billie Holiday, cantante estadounidense de jazz, también llamada Lady Day. Junto con Sarah Vaughan y Ella Fitzgerald, está considerada por muchos como la más importante e influyente voz femenina del jazz. El valor artístico de Billie Holiday reside en su capacidad interpretativa, en su dominio del "swing" y en la adaptación de sus cualidades vocales al contenido de la canción. Billie Holiday transmite a sus canciones una intensidad inigualable que, en muchos casos, es fruto de una traslación de sus vivencias personales a las letras cantadas. Esta personalización de lo cantado hace que su estilo esté muy vinculado a intérpretes clásicos de blues como Bessie Smith o Ma Rainey; también está clara su deuda, confirmada por ella misma, con Louis Armstrong (en su autobiografía dejó escrito: "Siempre quise el gran sonido de Bessie y el sentimiento de Pops") y, desde luego, con quien sería su principal acompañante inicial y su marido, Lester Young.
