Eunice Kathleen Waymon was born on February 21, 1933, and passed away on April 21, 2003. She was known professionally as Nina Simone and represented an amazing American singer, songwriter, pianist, arranger, and activist in the civil rights movement. Her music spanned a broad range of musical styles including classical, jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and pop.
Simone recorded more than 40 albums between 1958 and 1974. She made her debut with the album Little Girl Blue. She had a hit in the United States in 1958 with “I Loves You, Porgy”. Simone’s musical style fused gospel and pop with classical music, in particular, Johann Sebastian Bach, and accompanied expressive, jazz-like singing in her contralto voice.
This major inspiration for women and people, in general, had a life that makes us all very proud. Not only in the music industry, but also as an activist. DelightFULL had more than enough reasons to be inspired by Simone. So they did. And created the lighting designs you will never forget.
