This year’s Billie Holiday Tribute night is curated and emceed by Jazz Journalist Association – Jazz Hero Award winner Marcia Hocker.
This event brings together musicians of many genres to pay tribute to one of the greatest jazz singers and songwriters of our time. Billie Holiday, also known as “Lady Day,” was an American jazz singer and songwriter. Holiday was a hugely formative influence on jazz and pop singing.
Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo. Above all, she was admired all over the world for her deeply personal and intimate approach to singing.
The 15th Annual Billie Holiday Tribute Night is a celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month, Billie Holiday’s birthday month and her 107th Birthday.

A portion of each ticket sale will also be donated to Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center and Rosemary Anderson High School, which provide services in education, mentoring, family outreach, employment training, and placement to underserved communities, primarily people of color. https://www.portlandoic.org/
