The Nina in Me
I only saw one thing in the Spiegeltent during this year’s Midsummer Festival and that was ‘The Nina in Me’. I really enjoyed Karen Underwood telling her life story through the songs of Nina Simone. It was great hearing so many Nina Simone songs sung live. Karen Underwood has a wonderfully powerful voice which did the songs justice. She also did a good job of talking to the crowd and getting them involved when she wanted them to be involved, like when she got everyone in the Spiegeltent singing ‘he’s got the whole world in his hands’!
