We miss you Lady Day, now more than ever. She died as simply and regally as she lived. She was 44, had 70 cents in the bank, $750 in $50 bills taped to her leg and a $50,000 movie contract for her life story waiting for her signature for which, she was holding out for double or nothing.
Carole shares a look inside Billie Holiday’s enchanted life….
A bona fide performer who spent years on the musical stage, Carole’s reputation as a sharp, unapologetically audacious personality spreads far beyond the beautiful walls of Jazzland. With her sultry vocals and wry comic timing, Carole has neatly established herself as an unconventional lady of jazz.
Performing in a cabaret style version “Carole Freeman” will wipe the dust away from your memories, revive a stellar collection of standards and classic tunes, and her autobiographical monologues together with her exquisite music histories will undoubtedly fuel Jacksonville’s water cooler moments.
This will be a thrill filled night for mature audiences while drawing in a new generation of fans. The show-stopping performance of Carole Freeman is her signature piece and is sure to earn rave reviews.
