Theatre & Performance
Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Fringe First award winner Apphia Campbell’s acclaimed solo performance Black Is The Color Of My Voice heads to Shoreditch Town Hall, after sell-out seasons in Shanghai, New York, Edinburgh and at London’s Trafalgar Studios, Wilton’s Music Hall and Crazy Coqs.
Black Is The Color Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist who seeks 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.
