Saturday Music Post - God Bless the Child

"God Bless the Child" was written by Billie Holiday and Arthur Herzog and initially released in 1942 on Okeh Records, the jazz and blues (then sometimes called Race music) subsidiary of Columbia. Holiday recorded it two more times for mainstream labels, Decca (1950) and Verve (1956). It was also a huge hit for Blood, Sweat & Tears in 1968. Diana Ross sang it in the 1972 Billie Holiday biopic "Lady Sings the Blues."

The clips are at The Faculty Lounge.
