Who is Nina Simone?
Growing up as the sixth child of an African American family in Tryon, NC with eight children, Eunice Waymon knew music was her true passion. Thankfully she had local supporters who enabled her to enroll at Juilliard School of Music in New York and pursue her dreams. After mastering the art form, Eunice became a renowned piano player in Atlantic City's nightclubs - a testament to hard work and dedication!
In an effort to separate her professional career from her family, she adopted the stage name of Nina Simone. Once she began singing alongside her own playing, a successful jazz vocalist was born and between 1958-1974 Simone recorded more than forty albums. Her music genre delicately intertwined classical pieces with pop tunes and gospel material - ultimately creating something beautifully unique that only Nina could deliver. On April 21st 2003, our beloved artist passed away but will always be remembered for the timeless melodies that continue to resonate today.
