Nina Simone's heritage stands as one of the richest contributions to the history of American music. Her music transcends category and time. From her birthplace in North Carolina to her final home in the south of France, Dr. Nina refused to waiver from the truth, shook our souls with her music and brough her universal adoration. Her role in the cultural and commitment to political history of the time has been broadly explored and yet her genius cannot be categorized.
This collaborative concert is a reverent celebration of her artistry, her genius, her commitment to the reflection of the times and strength of art to create change.
We are vocalists and musicians who have been transformed by Nina Simone. We offer this concert as a testimony of our gratitude.
