Nina Simone, the great singer, pianist, composer, arranger, songwriter, feminist, activist, mother and woman. Nina was born in North Carolina, USA, February 21, 1933. Although Nina was called the "High Priestess of Soul" by her fans and was regarded by them as an almost religious figure, she was often misunderstood as well. The High Priestess would walk different paths to find the adequate songs to spread her message. A protest singer; a jazz singer; a pianist; an arranger and a composer, Nina Simone is a great artist who defies easy classification. She is all of these: a jazz-rock-pop-folk-black musician. In fact, we can find her biography in jazz, rock, pop, black and soul literature. Her style and her hits provided many singers and groups with material for hits of their own. Nina Simone passed away on April 21, 2003 in Carry-le-Rouet, France. She was Aged 70. She is survived by her daughter and will be forever missed - yet forever treasured.
