Nina Simone

“Sleep in peace when day is done”

Today is the birthday of American singer, composer and civil rights activist Nina Simone, who was born in 1933. No matter how many times I hear her recording of the Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse song ‘Feeling Good’ (recorded as ‘Feelin’ Good’), I never fail to be moved by the way she sings ‘Sleep in peace when day is done, that’s what I mean’.
