Eleanora Fagan (19151959), known professionally as [[StageName Billie Holiday]] and nicknamed "Lady Day", was a popular jazz singer. Her early life was tragic and her [[DrugsAreBad drug abuse]] cut her life short, but she remains famous for her powerful yet vulnerable voice, her persona, and her fearless advocacy of civil rights with such songs as the anti-lynching ballad "Strange Fruit."

Notable for "Strange Fruit" (which took considerable balls considering this was way before the UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement), "Summertime" and "Easy Living".

-> ''With few exceptions, every major pop singer in the US during her generation has been touched in some way by her genius. It is Billie Holiday who was, and still remains, the greatest single musical influence on me. Lady Day is unquestionably the most important influence on American popular singing in the last twenty years.''
