I recently watched a documentary about Nina Simone called “What Happened Miss Simone?”. It highlighted Nina’s beautifully complicated, brilliant mind and fiery presence. Simone’s personality is as deep, multi-faceted and moving as her music. In a way it seems music is the one thing that saved her and unraveled her at the same time. Nina was a fierce performer and passionate communicator, even now her power and presence still carry her unique sound. She carved her own wild path. There will never be anyone like her again.
Listen to her hauting and precious version of “I Loves You Porgy”. It will break and mend your heart at the same time.
