Lady Nade Sings Nina Simone

Celebrate Nina Simone’s 90th anniversary

Lady Nade pays tribute to the high priestess of soul in an evening of incredible live music.

Nina Simone was one of the most extraordinary artists of the twentieth century, an icon and consummate musical storyteller, who used her remarkable talent to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, passion, and love through a magnificent body of work. By the end of her life, she was enjoying an unprecedented degree of recognition.

Millions enjoyed her music through her many recordings and exposure through movies, television and online. She sold over one million CDs in the last decade of her life, making her a global best-seller.
