Black is the Colour of My Voice
Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Black Is The Color Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father. She reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church, to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement.
Direct from sell-out performances in the West End, Edinburgh, New York, and Shanghai, Apphia Campbell embarks on a UK tour paying tribute to Nina Simone's phenomenal career.
