Nina Simone Gets a Netflix Documentary
I recently posted about Avicii and his reworking of a classic Nina Simone song, and I'm back with more Nina news!
Netflix has a Nina Simone documentary in the works called 'What Happened, Miss Simone?' which will debut for streaming on June 26!

Directed by Liz Garbus, the film traces the Nina's life from her early days as a classical pianist and breakthrough success as a blues musician to her transition into a civil rights activist. The change to working off the stage and on the stage with a burning passion for justice through equality inevitably unraveled her career.
I'm really loving all the music documentaries coming out lately and this looks like it will be another great one!

Right on the heels of Bessie, I'm so excited these amazing musicians are getting the respect they deserve
This is such an awesome idea. I know a lot about Nina's music, but I don't really know much about her story. I'd love to learn more.
