A significant moment in the early career of Nina Simone came when she was invited to perform not just at a Town Hall, but the New York City Town Hall, one of the most prestigious venues in America. It happened on the night of 15 September 1959, when the young singer and pianist performed a selection of ballads, standards and traditional songs that perfectly suited her own musical tastes and talents. As a rising star and proud representative of African-American culture, Nina showed audiences and critics alike, her prowess as a commanding and gifted performer.
