It's a celebration of her work and her music. She was an activist, so we do a lot of her freedom songs that were fighting for civil rights and women's rights. We also do some of her love songs and her playful, fun songs, and then there’s her hard-hitting material, like her cover of Billie Holiday’s 'Strange Fruit'. We really enjoy Nina's take on 'Strange Fruit' and how she chose to sing it after Holiday wasn’t given permission to sing it so many times - it's a really important song in the set for us.
