    Nina Simone (February 21st, 1933 – April 21st, 2003) was an American singer and songwriter, as well as a pianist, arranger, and civil rights activist. Her stylings covered a broad range of genres, including jazz; classical; folk; R&B; gospel; blues; and pop.

    Simone originally wanted to be a concert pianist, but was sadly denied a scholarship by the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia because, according to an insider, she was Black. After this she began playing and singing (the latter was mandatory) in a small club in Atlantic City, which led to her being approached by Bethlehem Records. This resulted in her first US hit (a rendition of 'I Loves You, Porgy') in 1958.

    Simone went on to record more than forty albums, mostly between 1958 and 1974.
