At Nina Simone’s first recital at age 12, she refused to begin until her parents were allowed to sit in the front row, where they were sitting before they were forced to move to the back row. Happy MLK day.
Nina Simone. Say what you will about her & her parenting, her personality, her gender, her; this woman made me see something amazing when she sang. Her voice is a blessing & I'm glad I can play her cds & feel it. Truly feel it.
