Nina Simone

Happy birthday to one of the most extraordinary artists of the 20th century.  Known as a renaissance woman and musical storyteller, Nina injected her classical background into her music, and was well known for her lyrics, of love and love lost, she also touched a great deal upon the civil rights era of being black in America in the 50’s and 60’s.

Nina wore the title of High Priestess of Soul; if you’re familiar with her music, you know why she deserved such a noble title.  Ms. Simone would have been 80 today.  Happy Birthday to one of the Original Queens of Soul.

It was hard to choose which of her songs to post, so here is one of my favourites “I Put A Spell On You
