1950s Soul Dress
It wasn’t about what she sang as much as how she sang it. Her voice wasn’t the greatest. Limited range. The way she hit certain high notes almost made you think she was a little off, until she guided it soulfully into something transcendent. It conveyed what all great singers tried to convey— true emotion. But her way was different.
Near the end, when she sang “You’ve Changed,” it’s unclear if she’s talking about a lover, the music business, or life itself. Lady Day knew heartache, and she knew how to soothe those who also suffered it.
No small feat, Miss Fagan.
