Singer Andra Day is making her big-screen debut with a once-in-a-lifetime role as Billie Holiday. The first trailer for Hulu’s Lee Daniels-helmed biopic “The United States vs Billie Holiday” is here and Day proves she has acting chops as well as the voice.
Day stars as the jazz singer in the untold story of her 1939 song “Strange Fruit”, which protested the lynchings of Black Americans, making her a target of the FBI.
She stars alongside Trevante Rhodes, Garrett Hedlund and Natasha Lyonne in the film, which premieres February 26 on the streaming platform. Watch the trailer below.
