NINA SIMONE

Nina Simone, born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in 1933, wasn't just a jazz singer. She was a fiery whirlwind of talent, activism, and raw emotion, leaving an indelible mark on music and society. Though categorized as jazz, her genre-bending sound incorporated blues, folk, gospel, and classical, reflecting the depth and complexity of her artistry and life.

Tina Turner Review - "a music legend and inspiration to divas everywhere"... “Even after the countless awards, the 180 million album sales, the record-breaking tours, and unforgettable acting roles, Tina will be remembered most through the sheer joy of her music,” Max Lousada, chief executive of recorded music for Warner Music Group, said in a statement. “So powerful is her extraordinary, universal appeal that there is no doubt she will continue to influence generations to come. She stands as the epitome of artistic self-empowerment.”
