Noticed this typo:
"Sadie was also teenager at the time, and struggled to care for her daughter."
which should read
"Sadie was also a teenager at the time, and struggled to care for her daughter."
Thanks.

I love Billie Holiday. There will never be another like her. Ever.

I made this video tribute of her with live video performances.
In honor of Billie...
