Nina Simone - My Man Is Gone Now (for Nelson)

                             Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013)


"My Man's Gone Now" is an aria composed by George Gershwin, with lyrics by DuBose Heyward, written for the opera Porgy and Bess (1935).
Sung in the original production by Ruby Elzy, it has been covered by many female singers, notably Ella Fitzgerald, Audra McDonald, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan, and Shirley Horn, among others. In the opera, the aria is sung by Serena, the grieving widow, at her husband Robbins's wake.
