Abstract Icon: Nina Simone

You all will have to thank my little brother for suggesting this one to me.  I loved creating Nina!  Unapologetically honest, talented, and beautiful, the late great who was born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in North Carolina, inspired many with her rich contralto.  Gospel, jazz, blues, folk, and classical were some of the genres she sang in her concerts along with monologues and dialogues she’d tell.

Every time I see an image of her, I hear, “My Baby Just Cares For Me”, which is one of my favorite songs.
