Kandace Springs has shared her video performance of Billie Holiday’s ‘Strange Fruit,’ as featured on the acclaimed jazz-soul singer’s forthcoming record The Women Who Raised Me ‘” ‘the album I’ve been wanting to make all my life,’ as she describes it.

As reported, the set will be released on 27 March by Blue Note and is Springs’ celebration of some of the greatest female vocalists, also including Ella Fitzgerald, Roberta Flack, Astrud Gilberto, and Lauryn Hill. These and the other artists she covers helped inspire the singer’s career as she grew up in Nashville. She previously shared the audio and video of her version of Sade’s ‘Pearls.’

The artist says that The Women Who Raised Me ‘really expresses my love for all of these singers and gratitude for what they gave me. Each taught me something different and all of those lessons combined to make me who I am now.’”
