The Colors of Nina Simone
I'm preparing for my father to come home from a rehab facility. We were listening to Nina all day yesterday and he sharing his many Nina stories. My father and I saw Nina Simone together at the Chestnut Street Cabaret here in Philadelphia. What a venue-now sadly no more. She was about five or six hours late and the audience didn't mine a bit because we were waiting for the Queen and though a little testy she delivered!!!
