Billie Holiday Musical Tribute at Blues Alley August 8 & 9

July 24, 2014

"A Brighter Side of Day" the tribute to Billie Holiday starring Kathy Sledge (Sister Sledge) is a musical journey of an American icon of her day who rose to become a social phenomenon in the 1950s.

Holiday's soulful, unique singing voice and her ability to boldly turn any material that she confronted into her own music made her a superstar of her time. Today, Kathy Sledge celebrates Billie's masterpieces, creativity and vivacity, through the channeling of her songs, which are as well known today as they were decades ago.

Travel back with Ms. Sledge as she delivers a reincarnation of Lady Day's poignant voice: A style still considered to be one of the greatest jazz voices of all time.
