We Remember You: Nina Simone, ‘The High Priestess Of Soul’
Nineteen years ago, the world lost a woman of immense musical talent, global impact and social activism.
Known by the masses as Nina Simone, Eunice Kathleen Waymon’s unbridled passion and soul as a performer and skilled masterfulness as a singer and classically trained pianist only skim the surface of why her ongoing relevance and status as a legend is solidified.
Revered as “The High Priestess Of Soul,” Simone’s spell-bounding self-written works and renditions continue to mystify listeners with their simultaneously captivating nature and often liberating message.
Simone made Black people feel seen through her music and activism as she shared and represented our stories.
Simone’s work still serves as testaments to some of the struggles we still face today.
