Audra McDonald's Stunning as Billie Holiday

Thanks to same day rush tickets, I saw a recent matinee of Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill for the incredible price of $40. What was more unbelievable and transporting though was Audra McDonald's stunning rendition of Billie Holiday. Sorry Dee Dee Bridgewater, Audra's Billie has your Lady Day beat.

Check out Audra McDonald's performance on The Colbert Report

Exclusive - Audra McDonald - "God Bless the Child": Audra McDonald channels Billie Holiday in a performance of "God Bless the Child."

And here is clip a number from the show on Youtube. Not sure how long it will be there. So enjoy while you can.
