WATCH THE FIRST OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR "FEELING GOOD"

Dove, Verve Records, UMe and the Nina Simone Charitable Trust have joined forces to create the first official music video for “Feeling Good,” the iconic song by legendary singer/songwriter/musician and activist Nina Simone.

The video depicts generations of Black joy and boundless self-expression through hair and beauty to elevate Black stories and raise awareness of The Crown Act, spearheaded by Dove and the CROWN Coalition. The Crown Act legislation demands protection against discrimination in the workplace and public schools based on Black hair texture and protective styles like braids, locs, twists and Bantu knots.

“Nina was a tireless champion of individual freedom of expression," said a representative of the Nina Simone Charitable Trust. "She inspired the young, gifted and Black to celebrate their culture, reminding them that their souls were intact just the way they were.”

Jamie Krents, Head of Verve Records, said, “‘Feeling Good’ is one of Nina’s most beloved and listened-to tracks and a testament to the strength of her voice and her artistry. Nina Simone is a true legend, and we’re thrilled to create an empowering video and continue to bring her music to fans both old and new.”
