American singer, songwriter, pianist, arranger, civil rights activist and author of her own fascinating biography Nina Simone is known as the High Priestess of Soul. One of the most influential artists of the last century, Nina has been consistently ranked as one of the best singers of all time. Inspiring legends such as Madonna, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, David Bowie and John Lennon, modern artists like Beyoncé and Lana Del Rey continue to pay homages with music video references and covers. Having a Grammy Hall of Fame award, 2 honorary degrees, and having Nina Simone straat in Nihmegen, Simone is phenomenal. Someone everyone should listen to.

This is already heading down the wrong path: 'Misunderstood' is signature Nina yet I was its only supporter? :-?
