For much of the last decade, Andra Day has made a name for herself as one of the most distinct and moving voices in soul and R&B. She rose from a popular YouTube account, where she covered pop hits, to performing at the White House, the Academy Awards, and the Super Bowl, singing the unofficial Black national anthem “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Her portrayal of Billie Holiday in the Lee Daniels’ biopic The United States vs. Billie Holiday earned her both the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama, and a GRAMMY for the film’s soundtrack. She’ll launch the 2024 SummerStage season as the free opening night performance, in association with Blue Note Jazz Festival.
