Nina Simone - Yes We Can

Imagine Lady Nina Simone singing "Feeling Good" live in the background of Barak Obama victory party, with her voice that gets in your bones. What a sight that could be.
Her voice is like unfettered honesty, a kind of truth-telling that springs forth without conscious effort but not without thorough contemplation. That is why personlly I think Obama & Nina share the same artist voice, that real and proud voice that it's roots are from mother Africa.

Straight from the white/afro house comes this massive compilation of true to the bone classics, drivin by a snappy groovy piano of the lady of steel with a lean, jazzy, funky and soulful Nina Vocal style.

So keep it real, stand up for your rights and get ready to Juice it up!
