One of the greatest voices in musical history, Nina Simone, is about to be re-immortalised in a new Netflix documentary called What Happened Miss Simone?
The highly anticipated documentary is said to show the life and times of the beloved singer and activist. It’s also said to include some never-before-seen footage, as well as interviews with Simone’s daughter and much more. It’s the first time that a documentary on the late singer has featured her daughter.
The documentary just screened at the Sundance Film Festival, and will premiere on Netflix on June 26. To get you in the mood, the new two-minute trailer has just been unveiled, detailing an insightful, captivating look at the late singer, her life and her legacy.
Simone was one of those particularly fascinating artists who only had one single in the top 40 (I Love You, Porgy in 1949) but her personality, music and political beliefs have stood the test of time, and the immense legacy she’s left on the world is a clear testament to the fact.
