Ain't Got No, I've Got Life
Feb. 21, 1933 - Apr. 21, 2003
Nina Simone performs "Ain't Got No-I've Got Life."
Preacher's daughter from North Carolina Nina Simone aspired to be a concert pianist.
After she was denied a scholarship to the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia because of her race, she began singing in a small club accompanying herself on piano.
Once denounced by the establishment Nina spoke out against racial prejudice, achieved a great level of success, and released over forty albums.
