Fans of the late, great Billie Holiday are in for a treat tonight as HBO debuts Audra McDonald in her Tony winning performance of “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill” at 9 p.m. EST.

As previously reported, the special was recorded before a live audience at Café Brasil in New Orleans and features many of Holiday’s biggest hits including “God Bless the Child,” “Strange Fruit” and “What a Little Moonlight Can Do.”

Take a look at the clip below:
