Netflix is creating a documentary movie covering the life of the legendary Nina Simone. There will also be an album titled Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina which will feature the infamous Lauryn Hill covering Simone’s hit Feeling Good. She recently spoke with Rolling Stone about the song and this is what she had to say.
“Because I fed on this music, both hers and lovers like her, like my basic food, I believed I always had a right to have a voice. Her example is clearly a form of sustenance to a generation needing to find theirs. What a gift.”
The film will be titled What Happened, Miss Simone? and will be set to premiere on June 26th accompanying the album.
Here’s the original.
