Don't you wish other artists stayed as flexible as this, and were willing to rework their standards in new ways to prove their sheer brilliance? How many hours did she spend perfecting this version? It was worth every minute of effort.
She was a rare master.

Nina Simone - I Loves You Porgy
Nina Simone was a passionate, soul baring perfectionist and an incredibly intelligent woman. She was therefore MUCH more than just a messenger or a brush. As the song deals with oppression
To me she is perfection.
..for a moment there the world is hauntingly beautiful, captivating, for this moment in time..
