Tiercé Nina Simone Trifecta
Nina Simone @ The Bitter End Cafe (1968)
A long time ago, a friend asked me who I would like to be, if I could live that person's life. I said: Nina Simone! The friend was horrified: "You want to have her sad, bitter life?" "No, but if that's the price to pay for that voice, then yes!"
Nina Simone's First TV Appearance
My favorite song: My Baby Just Cares For Me - Nina Simone's emotional performance at the legendary Ronnie Scott's in London on November 17, 1985.
