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!
