"Offering a tribute to anyone’s music is difficult. But choosing a person who has strongly influenced your development musically and personally presents an even higher challenge. Natalie Douglas tackles this challenge perfectly.” - Jazz Review
“Douglas proves in her tribute show to Nina that the breadth of Simone’s charisma and music plays on and like Nina Simone, Natalie Douglas is captured by the magic of humanity. This new tribute is in place; full and complete” - Cabaret Scene
