one of my favorite photos of Billie Holiday. I used to have a copy of it, but I've moved so often I lost it. #BillieHoliday

Billie Holiday. Her effortless, velvet voice just pours the notes she sings, like melted chocolate over molds. There is a grave depth of sadness in her music, bringing shattering vulnerability to it's beauty.
