Release Info: Nina Simone - The Great Show Live in Paris (1968)
Nina Simone - The Great Show Live in Paris (1968)
Nina Simone is a singer of incredible and undeniable talent and importance. I really don't know where to begin with Nina so I can just upload this incredible performance that demands so many emotions of the audience (and receives all and then more) and hope people get obsessed (if they're not already). Nina Simone is indeed the high priestess of soul.
I think this little note I just read on wikipedia describes Nina's intensity pretty well.
"She began playing piano at her local church and showed prodigious talent on this instrument. Her concert debut, a classical piano recital, was made at the age of ten. During her performance, her parents, who had taken seats in the front row, were forced to move to the back of the hall to make way for white people. Simone refused to play until her parents were moved back."
