She had a unique sound and style of singing that delivered intense emotion and conviction with every note. Born to teenage parents and shuttled between relatives as a child in a poor section of Baltimore, she had little guidance and took to the streets at a young age. She experienced a lifetime's worth of hardships by the age of 17, including working as a prostitute and being jailed at a correctional facility – before finally finding her calling as a singer. She quickly worked her way up from small nightclubs in New York City to big band tours, collaborating with other jazz greats like Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Louis Armstrong.
