AN EVENING WITH BILLIE HOLIDAY (from slideshare) – Presentation/Coaching Example

This is mistakenly in the Coaching category. It really goes in Theatre, but needed something to put in the Coaching category.
This video played behind the performer impersonating Billie Holiday in this musical revue. For this vimeo version, I shortened all the slides to 5 seconds (just to give you an idea). On the slides that the performer sang during, I only used the musical intro.
