I am doing a challenge, counting down from ten to one, my favourite female music stars.

At three is the incomparable Nina Simone, the epitome of class and talent. Fusing jazz, classical, pop, soul and gospel, her music is timeless and combines powerful lyrics with beautiful melodies, that are sometimes full of melancholy and other times full of great hope. Who can not hear Feeling Good and not feel their heart lift a little? 

I can't remember when I first fell in love with Nina's music. I remember her music being played in my home, so maybe it was my mum who first got me interested. However it was, since I first heard it, it has been in my heart. I would have loved to have seen her perform live, but since she passed away ten years ago, this will sadly now never happen. I shall have to make do with watching her old performances, like this wonderful one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8yIpH_VI50 which was before I was even born!
