Eunice Kathleen Waymon (1933-2003), known professionally as Nina Simone, incorporated a broad range of musical styles including classical, jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and pop. The sixth of eight children born to a poor family in Tryon, North Carolina, she initially aspired to be a concert pianist, but due to racial discrimination she was denied admission to the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. To make a living, Simone started playing piano at a nightclub in Atlantic City. She changed her name to 'Nina Simone' to disguise herself from family members, having chosen to play 'the devil's music'. She was told in the nightclub that she would have to sing to her own accompaniment, which effectively launched her career as a jazz vocalist. She went on to record more than 40 albums between 1958 and 1974.
