The recognition of the singer’s North Carolina home as a national treasure marks another step in reassessing her remarkable career


Nina Simone always felt underappreciated during her lifetime. She had a right to. After 1960, her albums never put more than a dent in the lower end of the pop charts. And her singles made no greater impression. More, the press, the industry and even some audiences found her uncompromising performances and adamant character either off-putting or baffling.



I know the name, have heard her but not much.

One of my top three all-time musical idols. (She's from my denomination, and the perfectionism shows. :) )

I remember Billie Holiday, Lena Horne or as Redd Foxx called her, "The Horn" and who was real short, African American, singer, guested on Sanford and Son once (Lena did also) but just super sexy, who am I thinking of?

I need to listen to Billie now and hear that voice again.
