Billie Holiday (born Eleanora Fagan) also known as Lady Day was an American jazz singer and phenomenon in the 1950’s who not only greatly influenced jazz and pop singing, but through her vocal style, she pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo.

When Holiday's mother, Sadie Fagan, moved to New York in search of a better job, Billie eventually went with her.

The Ultimate Sex Kitten In her 60′s heydays you would have been hard pressed to find a man who did not consider Brigitte Bardot, or BB, to be the ultimate sex symbol.

As good old Mr. Sinatra said, “If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere.” Francis Albert Sinatra was born on December 12, 1915 in Hoboken, New Jersey.

At a young age Sinatra loved music and was influenced by many of the artist of his time such as Bing Crosby and Billie Holiday.

It was recorded on August 22, 1938 by Decca Records, whom he had a record deal with. I would consider this piece’s genre to be Big Band Jazz/Swing with a medium/fast tempo. The detailed dynamics, syncopated rhythms, and up-tempo swing really add to the excitement of this tune, which is in the musical form AABA. The song starts off with a 2 bar piano intro which gets the rhythm flowing and lets sections continuously join in, and is followed by four 32 bar AABA choruses. The soloing instruments seem to be the tenor saxophone, piano, trumpet (sometimes muted), and more saxophones.
Rhetoric plays a part in everyday life. However, I’ve noticed a lot of it in my music. I decided to pick a few songs that showed the most of the three appeals. In each song I will explain why in my opinion they used ethos, logos, and pathos and if it fits properly or not. In the song Popular by MIKA and Ariana Grande when Ariana sings “I never was a model never was a scholar but you were always popular”, she is stating that being smart didn’t compare to being popular in the world she was in.
Julie Andrews was born on October 1, 1935 in Walton on Thames, Surrey, England to Barbara and Edward C. Wells. Her mother was a piano player and travelled around performing constantly during Julie’s childhood. She was never very close to her mother because she was always away at some performance, but to this day her mother remains one of the most influential people of her life. It was from her mother that she inherited her musical awareness and her infamous perfect pitch. When Julie was very young her parents separated, and her mother remarried a man named Ted Andrews who she had performed in a musical act with for couple of years.
