Billie Holiday

As with most music stars we perceive them as untouchable and we place them on a pedestal to be admired from a far. That was a life of Billie Holiday, observed from a distance, adorned and at times pitied. However, there is a layer to her life and creative existence when talked about most people regard as gloomy yet in her case it was an important element which contributed to her eternal voice and vocal delivery. Our small project was to uncover that side of Billy Holiday without judgment, pay homage and add an element of playfulness and warning.
