Billie all the way. She had that smokey, sultry voice that will never be replaced.

neither, my preference is for etta james... her vocal quality, and depth of emotional connection with her music is far beyond the scale of billie and ella... or so says del....

Bessie Smith

what are you talking about, etta perfected billies style... in fact, its critically acclaimed that Etta's Mystery Lady release is a better rendition of Holiday songs... she has more depth and character in her voice...

Nina Simone was also great.

I consider Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald my favorites in two different categories.

I love David Sedaris' impersonation of Billie Holiday. I was screaming! Has anyone else heard that?

Bessie Smith, is my favorite (as bored said) then Etta James. (as delmar said), then Billie Holiday, and finally Ella Fitzgerald.

Billie is hands down the best there's ever been. You have to see her perform to truly understand. Do a search on You Tube sometime if you've never actually seen her sing.
