Billie Holiday Tribute Night
This benefit 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.
Siren Nation promotes and showcases the original work of women artists by creating year-round performance, exhibition, and educational opportunities. The Billie Holiday Tribute Night is a fundraiser show that will help support the free online series Siren Nation Speaks, as well as other free events.
Watch the concert online on April 3, 2021, beginning at 7:00 pm.
A portion of each ticket sale will be donated to KairosPDX: An education-focused nonprofit attacking Portland’s persistent achievement gap through innovative pedagogy, community collaboration, and family partnership.
