Video Wednesday – Nina Simone

Why post a video on Wednesday? Why not?

I love this song by Nina Simone. It is called I Wish I Knew How It would Feel To Be Free. It was originally written by Jazz legend Billy Taylor and Nina did a cover in 1967.

A lot of people will recognise it as the theme tune for the Barry Norman hosted television show The Film Programme. I would always watch whatever film he said was good because he knew how to separate the wheat from the chaff.

When I was on my Disney cruise vacation, to see Mickey Mouse, my new BFF, one of the singers performed this song really well.
