“Feeling Good” was the first Nina Simone song I heard.
I was 31, recently divorced, and I needed to find her. Her recordings became a frequent companion. Nina Simone gave me the sound of her soul — as an activist, as a woman want of love, full of wit, and hardened by pain. She deserves to be celebrated.
Joyeux anniversaire Mme. Simone!
