Direct from sell-out runs in the West End, Edinburgh, New York and Shanghai, Apphia Campbell’s critically acclaimed show is embarking on a UK tour.

Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Black Is the Color Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking 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.

Campbell may wear Simone’s trademark head wrap but her performance goes beyond impersonation.’ **** The Times
