Nina Simone, a.k.a. Eunice Waymon. A unique voice, a versatile musician, civil rights activist… One of  my favorite singers. I especially love her albums “Nina Simone Anthology: the Colpix Years”, “Nina’s Choice”, “Nina Simone and Piano”, and “Baltimore.”

A rare contralto. Incredible soul.

I could go on and on and on, but one of the commenters on You Tube has already quintessentially put it, “Nina could sing the words on a box of cereal & it would sound enchanting.”

Oh, and thank you, professor Patricia Davis-Wiley, for intoducing me to Nina!
