“What happened Miss Simone” a new documentary directed by Liz Garbus available on Netflix is a joy to watch, Nina Simone’s voice is unbelievable. You get to see how her life went off the rails and the pain she must have gone through when her career came to a stand still. All the fame and success was not enough, all she wanted was to behave how she saw fit and not conform to what was expected of her. Whether it was the expectations of her Husband, Daughter or promoters, in the end she could not give what was expected, she could only be herself, good and at times bad. At least she was free.
I highly recommend this documentary, it is so interesting.
