Direct from sell-out performances in Shanghai, New York and Edinburgh Apphia Campbell embarks on her debut UK tour.
‘Black Is The Color of My Voice’ and ‘Soul Session'
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.
In the second half Apphia Campbell performs a cabaret show entitled 'Soul Sessions', a musical journey of her idol Nina Simone, featuring full-length versions of songs appearing in 'Black Is the Color Of My Voice' as well as other popular favourites.
