Remember Me?

On Feb. 21, 1933, Eunice Kathleen Waymon was born in North Carolina. You may know this American singer-songwriter better by her stage name, Nina Simone. Crank up her first hit single, "I Loves You, Porgy," and learn a little more about this influential figure.

  • Her career began with a love for the piano. She began practicing the instrument at age 3 and had her first classical recital when she was 12.
  • She adopted the name Nina Simone when she began singing and playing cocktail piano in New Jersey in 1954.
  • Featured on her debut album "Little Girl Blue" (1959), Simone's first big hit was a cover of "I Loves You, Porgy" from the 1935 opera "Porgy and Bess." "My Baby Just Cares for Me" was another favorite on the record.
  • Simone sang many songs about injustice during her time as a civil rights activist. In her 1991 autobiography "I Put a Spell on You," she said, "I was needed, and I could sing something to help my people."
  • You couldn't pin her into a category: Simone sang it all, from classic, folk, and gospel to blues, jazz, and R&B. She recorded over 40 albums in the first 16 years of her professional career.
  • Other famous recordings include "I Put a Spell on You," "Feeling Good," and "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood."
  • Simone was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2009 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018.
