From the first syllables of the first song, she draws you into the essence of Lady Day. Sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter and very broken, she is always alluring. Some performers approach the spirit of Billy Holiday with a ferocity that makes you aware that you are a hostage. Foreman is like smoke exhaled slowly. She enfolds the audience seductively, hypnotically until they are willing participants in this emotional heist. Bottom line — she will steal your heart.
