This concert was deeply beautiful. my soul shuddered on a number of occasions with pure joy. i worried i would be disappointed as I'd never seen Nina Simone play live and felt it would be a betrayal hearing lesser versions of her historic songs and music. How wrong i was, this was an astounding tribute and remembrance to a phenomenal woman, musician, human being. The four stunning vocalists breathed life in to every song that they sang and the music from the original band members was sublime. I feel indebted to all of the performers for giving me and those lucky enough to be there with a musical experience beyond imagination and a memory to cherish. Superb, Strong and Sassy and Gorgeous. WOW
