Throwback Natural: Nina Simone

“It’s a new dawn, It’s a new day, It’s a new life For me, And I’m feeling good”
Nina Simone (I Put a Spell on You: The Autobiography of Nina Simone)
I hope no one is surprised that the quote above is a Nina Simone original…Jennifer Hudson sings it in her weight watchers commercial 🙂
If you aren’t familiar with Nina (born Eunice Kathleen Waymon), I am delighted to enlighten you.  Known as the ‘High Priestess of Soul’,  she could weave a spell so seductive and hypnotic that the listener lost track of time and space as they became absorbed in the moment.  An American singer, songwriter, pianist, arranger, and civil rights activist widely associated with jazz music, Simone aspired to become a classical pianist while working in a broad range of styles including classical, jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and pop.
We love and miss you Nina! Your music is classic and lives on!
