Gail Nelson – Will sing Billie Holiday (lady Day) music in a fund raiser to help support the Airolina Young Aviator Flight Training and Aviation Career Program.
Long before Audra McDonald’s performance “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill” on Broadway there was Durham North Carolina native Gail Nelson performing an original version of “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill” directed by her late husband Danny Holgate. She performed this show throughout the US east of Mississippi and if you were fortunate enough to see her in this performance you may have thought you were listening to and seeing Billie Holiday in person.
*Ms. Nelson will be accompanied by the 14 member North Carolina Jazz Ensemble*
The program will be held at the:
Hayti St. Joseph’s Historic Center,
804 Old Fayetteville Street in Durham, NC
Sunday, October 28, 2018
