    Today, "Hallelujah" is one of the most-performed rock songs in history.

It has been covered by hundreds of artists, including Bob Dylan, U2, Justin Timberlake, and k.d. lang, and it is played every year at countless events - both sacred and secular - around the world.

Drawn from a trove of rare archival footage, audio recordings, and interviews (including Simone's remarkable private diaries), this nuanced examination of Nina Simone's life highlights her musical inventiveness and unwavering quest for equality.
