Billie Holiday Being Inducted into National Women's Hall of Fame
Billie Holiday, considered one of the greatest jazz vocalists of all time, will be inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame later this year, on September 30-October 1, 2011 in Seneca Falls, NY, the birthplace of the American Women's Rights Movement. Holiday, known for her deeply moving and personal vocals, remains a popular musical legend more than fifty years after her death.
The National Women's Hall of Fame, formed in 1969, has inducted 236 women including vocalists Ella Fitzgerald and Bessie Smith.
