Among those being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame this weekend is singer, songwriter, pianist and arranger Nina Simone.
Simone was born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in 1933 in North Carolina.  She changed her name to “Nina Simone” to disguise from her religious family the fact that she’d chosen earn a living playing “the devil’s music” at night clubs in Atlantic City.
Over her career, she recorded more than 40 albums and fused gospel and pop with classical music; in particular that of Johann Sebastian Bach
Simone died in France in 2003 at the age of 70.
