Biography of Nina Simone
NS take their name from the American singer, songwriter, musician, arranger, and civil rights activist, Nina Simone. Born into poverty, Nina Simone taught herself music before funding all her music lessons through her own work and performances. Often heralded as the "the High Priestess of Soul"; Nina Simone is an example of a strong independent female who advocated tolerance, unity and equality for all.
