Never Really Appreciated Nina Simone Until Now
Two years ago, my husband and I saw a play entitled, "Peaches," based on the Nina Simone song, "Four Women." Anyone not familiar with the song should check it out. I never fully embraced Ms. Simone until now. I really fell in love with her style while watching a Youtube video of her singing the song, "Feelings." She was a "high priestess" all right going from tremendous highs to dismal lows. I don't think the audience fully appreciated the moment. I was captivated. I showed it to my husband and he was equally captivated, we were both caught up in the spell. I wish I had the chance to see her perform live. Ahhhh the beauty.
