About this Article

Covering the music of the late Nina Simone seemed like a natural choice for Morgan James. From an early age, the Broadway actress says she's had an old soul that felt a connection to the legendary singer. Her first solo album, "Morgan James Live: A Celebration of Nina Simone," captures James live at the New York jazz club Dizzy's paying tribute to Simone. Now that album is out of the way, James is turning her attention to another soul project, "Motown: The Musical."
