  • Nina Simone

    The “High Priestess of Soul,” Nina Simone was one of the most prominent and eclectic vocalists of the 20th century, singing jazz, pop, soul, gospel, blues, folk, and Broadway in her distinct low tenor. Yet, Simone’s first dream was to be a classical pianist. She attended school at New York’s Juilliard School of Music in the ’50s, and her distinct style as a singer/songwriter/pianist originated from this classical influence. Simone released more than 40 albums over the course of her career and played a key role in the civil rights movement. Her signature versions of “I Put a Spell on You,” “Ne me quitte pas,” “Feeling Good,” “Sinnerman,” “My Baby Just Cares for Me,” “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood,” and “I Loves You, Porgy” are her most well-known songs. These only skim the surface of her great influence, though, which includes everyone from John Lennon to Christina Aguilera.
