I Know this is a little Late

But I wanted this on my site. Blogcritics has a beautiful tribute and account of the life of the most wonderful soul and prophet, Nina Simone.

Oh, I don't know if I have just one favorite. I love Nina ( as with Barbra, I just can't choose one anything). Her voice, her integrity, her passion, her anger. I love her. Alas, I truly do cherish Mississippi Goddam, Pirate Jenny, several versions of her I Loves You Porgy, and Wild is the Wind. I also adore "Ain't Got No-I Got Life."
