Nicci Canada Sings Nina Simone
Mallard Creek Recreation Center
Presented by Dapper Street Productions
Dapper Street Presents!!! Nicci Canada Sings Nina Simone
She was one of the most extraordinary artists of the twentieth century, an icon of American music. She was the consummate musical storyteller, a griot as she would come to learn, who used her remarkable talent to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, passion, and love through a magnificent body of works. She earned the moniker ‘High Priestess of Soul’ for she could weave a spell so seductive and hypnotic that the listener lost track of time and space as they became absorbed in the moment. She was who the world would come to know as Nina Simone.
A native of Charleston, West Virginia, Nicci Canada was destined to sing. Born into a family of vocalists, she has been surrounded by music her entire life. Possessing a unique ability to connect with listeners, she uses her voice as a canvas to showcase the truths of the heart and soul. Her warm, sultry vocals are reminiscent of artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone, but her amazing sound is unique to the gifts and talents she has been given.
Nicci released her first solo project in 2011 title “Twenty Twelve”, an eclectic mix of melodies that highlighted her unique vocal ability and introduced her to audiences around the world. However, it would be the grace and soulful serenity of Jazz that called to her heart and would deliver her to a world of jazz enthusiasts. She has since gone on to perform with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra and the Tulsa Signature Symphony and founded Dapper Street Production based in Charlotte, NC.
