From Audra to Billie: Watch Lady Day Tony Nominee Audra McDonald Sing 'God Bless the Child'

From Audra to Billie: Watch Lady Day Tony Nominee Audra McDonald Sing 'God Bless the Child'
Audra McDonald

Even a Billie Holiday hologram wouldn't be as convicing as the five-time Tony winner's performance. Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill star Audra McDonald stopped by The View to perform a number as the jazz legend. Watch as McDonald, who is nominated for a Tony for her role in the play, takes the studio audience back to 1959 as she sings “God Bless the Child,” complete with a Flashback Friday backdrop, a soft lens and some perfect mood lighting. It's no wonder that the production is enjoying an extended run at Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre.
