This version of ”Strange Fruit” by Nina Simone channels what many are feeling today. See the link below for the lyrics (controversial to many) and songwriters credits. Billie Holiday’s original version was the popular version of this jazz classic. If you do not already have a collection of Nina Simone’s music, treat yourself and go to iTunes and listen through her incredible career and legacy. I thought I had everything, but just downloaded two albums I’d never heard before.
