Andra day rise up

Andrea Day

She woke up to a crisp autumn morning, slipped on her favorite running shoes, and ran five miles. Halfway through, she felt her feet hit the pavement of an unfamiliar neighborhood. She began to run faster, harder, but by the end, her bad ankle gave out. Andrea was physically ill the rest of the day, but her spirit her mended. She wouldn’t trade this pain for anything.

All I knew was it made me sad — it made me know that whoever this woman was seeing, made me concerned for her ... I knew that she sacrificed. I knew there was some loss. There was such pain there and it was ... it stunned me as a child. It really just struckAri Shapiro: I'm just trying to imagine how a child would relate to this song, "Strange Fruit," which is so central to this film.

Can you tell us about what the FBI was so afraid of? (Source: me. (Source:

First of all, thank you so much for saying "awful terms," That's one of the things for me on set, I realized calling "Strange Fruit" a beautiful song is almost like a slap in the face of what she was trying to do. You know? What makes it beautiful is its truth. But it's a horrific song. And what they were afraid of was that "Strange Fruit" is truth. It is sheer, unadulterated, uncompromising truth. And when you are trying to persist in a social climate of inequity, in a system of racial inequality – those systems are built on lies, and they're built on deception. And obviously, a system like that can really only be dismantled with truth and with light. Exposing these dark places, which, that's what "Strange Fruit" threatened to do. She was integrating audiences. She was trying to fight for equality. And they wanted a system of supremacy — and she was fighting against that. (Source: www.npr.org www.npr.org))When I tell you, even just saying it — hearing you saying it — just gave me goosebumps. That s*** sat in my spirit so heavy and that felt — I was so happy to deliver that. It felt like the final blow. I know that I've sung that song. I know her grandkids and so on and so forth. The grandkids of the world have sung that song, 'cause I've done it myself. And so, I was also armed with that additional layer, playing her. So, a part of me was like, "Billie Holiday sang it to him," and then the other part of me was like, "Yeah, b****! We will be singing it! Yes! Yes!" [Laughs] I was like, "You right, sis. We singin' it." (Source:

"Rise Up" started as a sort of prayer—I thought about what I needed to hear to be able to get back on my feet. Most of the song came streaming out in the first freestyle recording. Honestly, there are lines in there I'd normally find cliché. But sometimes a good cliché is exactly what you need in a moment Next album: The soundtrack to “The United States vs. Billie Holiday,” which features Day singing an array of Holiday classics, was released Friday by Warner Bros.
