Se Ms. Lauryn Hill och Mary J. Blige hylla legendariska Nina Simone


 

 

Den gångna helgen hölls induktionsceremonin för årets invalda artister till Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, där sångerskan Nina Simone postumt röstades in i vintras. Flera artister, däribland Lauryn Hill och Mary J. Blige, bidrog till ett hyllningsuppträdande för Simone. Först ut var Andra Day med The Roots i ett medley på “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free” och “I Put A Spell On You”.

 

Ms. Lauryn Hill följde sedan upp med ett medley av “NEe Me Quitte Pas,” “Black Is The Color Of My True Love’s Hair” och “Feeling Good.”

 

Mary J. Blige höll avslutningsvis ett varmt och fint tal då hon officiellt presenterade induktionen av Nina Simone:

 

“Nina was bold, strong, feisty and fearless, and so vulnerable and transparent all at the same time. Her voice was so distinctive and warm and powerful; I never heard anything like it. She knew who she was and she was confident in what she did and why she did it. But it was often the lack of confidence in herself that people could relate to. Nina sang for all her pain, her joy, her confusion, her happiness, her sickness, her fight. She fought through all the stereotypes. She fought for her identity. She fought for her life.”
