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.
No two people on Earth are a like, and it's got to be that way in music, or it isn't music. - Billie Holiday
