Here’s Zoe Fitzpatrick performing What a Difference a Day Makes, by Dinah Washington
Whats Dinah’s Story?
Washington entered a talent contest at the Regal Theater at age 15. She won the contest and began splitting her time between church performances and club appearances.
She landed a gig as a singer in Garrick’s house band and soon found herself working in the same club as her idol, Billie Holiday. Lionel Hampton caught one of her shows and offered to take her on the road with his big band.
She went on to record with Mercury Records and scored a string of Top 10 hits, including “What a Diff’rence a Day Makes” (1959). This is Dinah’s story, what will yours be?
