Picture perfect Alex rocks to Billie Holiday
Former X Factor Winner Alexandra Burke looked fabulously stylish when she arrived at the Billie Holiday production at the Charing Cross Theatre in London’s trendy West End.
Alexandra rocked fabulous – wearing a black wool coat with frill flare and lemon yellow lining, lemon yellow platform pumps, a white tank top and a black velvet skirt. The ‘Bad Boy’s’ singer chatted briefly to reporters and fans as she arrived at the venue. “I’ve been keeping a low-profile recently”, exclaimed Alexandra.
Alexandra took to twitter after the performance: “Nina Kristofferson is inspiring me so much right now at the Charing Cross theatre … Teaching me the Billie Holiday Story… Xx”
The Billie Holiday Story weaves a brilliant cocktail of songs and stories with the demons that plagued one of the greatest singers of the 20th Century. Writer and Actress Nina Kristofferson brings this one woman musical-play of strong monologues, drink, drugs, emotion and jazz to life accompanied by a five piece band.
The highs and lows of Billie Holiday’s career are sketched out through some of her greatest hits, putting ‘God Bless The Child’, ‘Good Morning Heartache’, ‘Strange Fruit’ and ‘Don’t Explain’ alongside many other iconic hits.
