(February 21, 1933 – April 21, 2003)
Although Nina Simone wasn't crowned to lead any nation, she was majestic. A woman of deep passion who touched you in the deepest corners of your soul to bring out things you might not have known were there. Her activism for liberties in human and civil rights was reflected through her compositions and performances. Before you listen to her "I Wish I Knew How It Feels To Be Free" tune, please take a moment to listen to the snippet of a rare interview that can pretty much set the tune up. Listen to the passion in her voice and by her mannerisms.
