Grand Performances presents Young, Gifted & Nina: A Tribute to Nina Simone at the wondrous Water Court. Pre-concert cocktails and socializing at Noe, one of Downtown's premiere destinations. Please be punctual: it is unlikely that late-comers will be able to find the group.
The High Priestess of Soul Nina Simone used her remarkable talent and passionate storytelling to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, and love that coursed through her magnificent body of work. This heartwarming and feisty celebration of one of our most prolific cultural icons includes the powerful and dynamic vocals of Joi Gilliam, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Jimetta Rose, Sonja Marie, and an ensemble of L.A.’s finest musicians all led by Musical Director Dexter Story.
