‘Apphia Campbell is nothing short of sensational… she will make you cheer for her, smile with her and then sting your eyes with tears’ ★★★★★ Broadway Baby 

Direct from sell-out performances in Shanghai, New York, Edinburgh and London’s St James Theatre, Apphia Campbell brings her acclaimed show to Wilton’s for one week only. 

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. 

The second part of the evening is Apphia’s ‘Soul Sessions’ cabaret, celebrating Simone’s soul-stirring music.

Directed by Arran Hawkins and Nate Jacobs 
Presented by Seabright Productions Ltd
