“I’m so grateful to be here today honoring the legacy of the wonderful, powerful, dynamic, super-talented Nina Simone,” the 36-year-old singer shared before performing.
He added, “I find myself studying her versions of all kinds of songs, thinking about her words, thinking about her boldness, thinking about her commitment to justice. I’m truly humbled to be here tonight to honor her legacy.”
On the same night, the film was introduced by Sundance founder Robert Redford.
