Spotlight on Nina Simone

One night I was watching a movie with my husband. The main character was a young woman; a poor lost soul who had committed murder. A man decided instead of her going to jail, he would recruit her and train her to do “dirty work” on secret missions. Eventually, she wanted out from that type of life. Ultimately he figured out a way to let her go. He had grown fond of her and let her go. But not before he had learned one special fact about her. She said that she liked “Nina Simone”. That struck a chord with me. Did she say Nina Simone? The High Priestess of Soul? Yep. That was who she liked. She said that her mother listened to her. The movie was "Point of No Return" (1993).
