Billie Holiday

Billie Holiday was born in Baltimore, Maryland. Her early life was difficult. It’s said she sought solace in music and started performing at an early age. When she was 18, Billie performed in a Harlem jazz club. John Hammond, a producer, saw her there, and got her recording work with bandleader Benny Goodman. That was the beginning of her outstanding career that brought her fame.

Billie Holiday died in 1959, a victim of substance abuse. She’s quoted as saying, “I never hurt nobody but myself, and that’s nobody’s business but my own.”
