I have like a hundred pictures of lady day and she really was beautiful. She created her looks and was great with make up.

Oh my, oh my, oh my! Don’t explain is one of my favourite songs and I thought my favourite version was Nina Simone’s but this, this is… It’s so sad it’s beautiful.

I live in Cleveland and has had the chance to meet the great Mr. Scott. I must admit that I too was overly fascinated with his looks and voice more than anything else. Before I found out about his “condition” I just knew this person had been born a woman and we’d find out later like we did with Stella Walsh (Olympic runner) and Billy Tipton (jazz musician).

Billie Holiday’s story is so heartbreaking. Her voice was incredible. She is certainly one of our great treasures who was gone much too soon.

Another great post though! I love this blog.
