Lady Sings the Blues. This is what I see in my mind when I hear the music of Billy Holiday. I see colors with music and the music creates different forms with every artist and song. Music is seen by me. I can see the music.

Acting gives me life, while music feeds my soul. I’ve spent a lot of my life feeling tortured by the idea of having to choose one passion over the other. Fortunately, my latest project presented me with an opportunity to combine the two. How lucky am I, and what an important reminder to not play small?! Shining your light inspires others to shine right along with you. I’m doing my part. Are you? . “Don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do.

Hey look, my record matches my book: Lady Sings the Blues, by Billie Holiday and William Daly • If you can’t tell, I’ve been loving turning on my old Billie Holiday records and reading this book. William Daly captures Billie’s voice so well, it’s like you can hear her reading it directly to you. This book is funny enough to make you laugh, heartbreaking enough to make you cry at others, and deep enough to make you pause and think about your own life and dreams. And literary work aside, as a musician, I’m sure I will find myself revisiting this some years down the road. • • • BillieHoliday WilliamDaly LadySingsTheBlues jazz music book nonfiction autobiography read reader readmore bookstagram

Had a dream come true today. I met an icon and one of my all time favorite heroes. The coolest of the cool. The Baron of Cloud City, Mr. Billy Dee Williams. Words cannot express how humbled I was to meet him. He was very kind and gave me some solid words of encouragement. "Never hold back from your deepest desires and fly high for the stars". Thank you, therealbillydee . I can't wait to see you and Chewie back in the Falcon one last time this holiday season on the big screen 😁 starwars starwarssunday starwarscelebrationchicago chicago sundayfunday theempirestrikesback returnofthejedi theriseofskywalker mahogany brianssong thejeffersons batman lando undercoverbrother harveydent bespin ladysingstheblues landocalrissian smooth milleniumfalcon cloudcity colt45 coolest icon legend meandbillydee blackdontcrack photooftheday
