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.
