Byrdie Green ‎• The Golden Thrush Strikes At Midnight



Byrdie Green (born 1936) was a jazz and R&B singer born in Detroit, Michigan.
The daughter of a Baptist minister, she sang first in her father's church. Later she went to New York and performed in clubs. Around 1965, she was hired by organist Johnny "Hammond" Smith and recorded albums for Prestige Records, Roulette Records, & Twentieth Century Fox. She also cut a few 45rpm records.
Byrdie took a break from her career to raise her two daughters, Deborah A. Murray and Dardenella Braxton. Upon her return she performed at Carnegie Recital Hall, toured with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra and before her death in February 2008, she was with the touring company of the Broadway play Black and Blue. Byrdie's health started to fade and she developed emphysema and was on oxygen 24 hours a day, and had to use a wheelchair.
