Audra McDonald won her sixth Tony for her portrayal of Billie Holiday's last days in "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill." McDonald won for her uncanny recreation of the voice and mannerisms of the jazz great.

Watch Audra's performances of some of Billie's classics below, and try to remember that the voice you're hearing belongs to the Queen of Broadway not Billie.

"God Bless the Child"

"Crazy He Calls Me"

"What a Little Moonlight Can Do"
