Fringe First award-winner Apphia Campbell’s acclaimed production heads on an extensive national tour after sell-out seasons in Shanghai, New York, Edinburgh, and the West End of London.
Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Black Is The Color Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father.
She reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement.
