Netflix has a Nina Simone documentary in the works called 'What Happened, Miss Simone?' which will debut for streaming on June 26!
Directed by Liz Garbus, the film traces the Nina's life from her early days as a classical pianist and breakthrough success as a blues musician to her transition into a civil rights activist. The change to working off the stage and on the stage with a burning passion for justice through equality inevitably unraveled her career.
I'm really loving all the music documentaries coming out lately and this looks like it will be another great one!
