    I'm a big fan of Andra, and started a thread about her that's now locked. Definitely looking forward to this and will even subscribe to Hulu next month -- one of the channels I don't have!



    Incidentally, I'm never sure whether to start a thread for a music biopic in the Music or Visual Arts forums, so I started it here -- mostly because I visit here more than in Visual Arts.

    Here's Andra singing "All Of Me" from the soundtrack of the forthcoming film:

    I am really looking forward to this. She really nails the nuances of Billie's voice, wow. Thanks for posting!

    Here's a version of "Strange Fruit" that Andra recorded in 2017, so this will be different than the soundtrack version:

    I first discovered Andra on the Nina Simone tribute, "NINA REVISITED... A Tribute To Nina Simone" from 2015. Strangely, Andra's song was only included on the Google play deluxe version of the album.

    Did you like the film? Was it accurate? I am a fan of Ms. Holiday, but Hollywood depictions of her, not so much.

    Sorry I mistakenly put the wrong year in the thread title -- the movie is being released next month (02/26/2021). I've asked a Gort to fix the date in the title!

    Right. The trailer depicts her being arrested onstage...pretty sure that never happened? It still looks promising though.
