Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of original documentary programming said the doc, “paints a brave and provocative picture of Nina Simone — artist, civil-rights activist and heroine — in a film that we’ve loved from Day One and are proud to bring to our viewers around the world.”

The iconic singer died in 2003 at the age of 70, but lives in the memories of those who loved her and her music.  What Happened, Miss Simone?,  tells Simone’s story mostly in her own words, with excerpts from her diaries and letters as well as interviews with her daughter, Lisa Simone Kelly, friends and collaborators.

Blige, Jazmine Sullivan, Usher, Common, and Simone’s daughter Lisa.

This is gonna be a hot one!  Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, the LP will be released July 10th. 

Finally, according to Usher and Justin Bieber are back in the hot seat of a $10 million lawsuit. Singer/songwriter Devin Copeland and Mareio Overton filed suit against the two singers in 2013 over the single, “Somebody to Love.” Copeland, also known as De Rico when he performs, claimed Biebers 2010 hit shared the same lyrics and composition as his 2008 song with the same name.

So he and Overton who wrote the song, filed a $10 million copyright infringement lawsuit.  But they never got a day in court because the suit was thrown-out last year, by U.S. District Judge Arenda Wright.  Now BET reports a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Pamela Harris decided Thursday this week, the lawsuit will be reinstated.   So, just like that Usher and Bieber are back on the hook for $10 million in copyright infringement suit headed to trial.

Judge Harris wrote in her ruling, "After listening to the Copeland song and the Bieber and Usher songs as wholes, we conclude that their choruses are similar enough and also significant enough that a reasonable jury could find the songs intrinsically similar."
