Any artist taking on a Nina Simone classic must tread lightly. They must respect the brilliance of Simone's artistry while bring their own distinct offerings to the work.

Meshell Ndegeocello's take on the Nina Simone track, "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair," is a brilliant rendition of Nina's classic. The video is haunting.

This song can be found on Meshell's album Pour une âme souveraine - A Dedication to Nina Simone.

. The The album is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.
