I Put A Spell On You: The Autobiography of Nina Simone Rating:

Born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in small-town North Carolina, Nina Simone changed the face of both music and race relations in America. She struck a chord with bluesy jazz ballads like "Put a Little Sugar in My Bowl" and powerful protest songs such as "Mississippi Goddam" and "To Be Young, Gifted, and Black," the anthem of the American Civil Rights movement.

Coinciding with the re-release of her famous Philips Recordings, here are the reflections of the "High Priestess of Soul" on her own life. She relates how racism forced her to relinquish her dream of becoming the first Black concert pianist and describes her singing career, as well as her many loves. It's the story of an incredible rise to fame, a self-imposed exile, and the woman behind it all.
