Mary J. Blige to Play Nina Simone

Mary J. Blige is going to play the great Nina Simone on an upcoming movie. The movie will focus on Simone’s relationship with her assistant Clifton Henderson. Nina was one of the greatest in my opinion. She was a songwriter, pianist and civil rights activist. She really wanted to be a pianist but in order to get jobs she was pretty much forced into singing as well.

This will be interesting to see Blige play Simone. Simone has been known to be quite feisty when on stage.
