Here is my #Fringe review on Black is the Colour of My Voice!
Having watched the Netflix documentary, “What Happened, Nina Simone?” I thought I had some idea of what to expect from Apphia Campbell’s ‘Black is the Color of My Voice‘. I was wrong.
The show completely surpassed my expectations. Powerful and evocative, Campbell breathed life into Mena Bordeaux, a jazz singer and activist inspired by the life of Nina Simone.
From racial discrimination in childhood to love (and its absence), from falling from grace to redemption, the audience is taken on a moving and relentless journey as Mena tries to find the meaning of self-worth and identity.
Apphia is a star when it comes to her singing – her songs left the audience in awe.
A magnificent show and a true gem, ‘Black is the Colour of My Voice’ deserves no less than a five star rating.
