In Billie and Me, the talented award-winning singer and actress Patti Boulaye goes on an entertaining personal journey in which she discusses the parallels of her life and career with that of the great singer Billie Holiday.
The late Holiday's life, songs and cause of her death have made a strong impact on modern day performers and it was many of Holiday's songs and performances that increased Boulaye's love of jazz. In Billie & Me, Boulaye performs some of her own favourite music and well-known songs by Billie Holiday.
Recently Boulaye took a journey of a lifetime for the BBC travel documentary series The Real Marigold Hotel and she is also appearing in the latest series of BBC's very popular Celebrity Master Chef.
This year Boulaye published her remarkable and moving autobiography The Faith of a Child that charts her riveting life story through wealth, virtual slavery and civil war, to show-business stardom and success in Britain and her birth country Nigeria. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the musical Hair, the show that changed her life when at the age of 17, she joined the cast after arriving in London from Nigeria in the early 70's.
In 2016, Boulaye was awarded an OBE for her charity work in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
