Andra Day is a ROCK STAR

During soundcheck (thumbnail) and live premiere of "Amen" (video) 11.19.16

Billie Holiday and Amy Winehouse would be the artists I’d use to describe Andra Day’s sound.  This was before I saw her live.  During the sound check experience, I learned she is a genuinely warm person.  But when she stepped on stage that night, Day’s presence burst past the parameters of it with her incomparable voice and energy. After her set, she returned onstage for a captivating cover of Queen’s “I Want It All” with a bright red aura that lit the room like Dave Chappelle’s version of Prince.  I left the venue thinking “Andra Day is a ROCK STAR!”
