Nina Simone - Her musical style arose from a fusion of gospel and pop songs with classical music, in particular with influences from her first inspiration, Johann Sebastian Bach,and accompanied with her expressive jazz-like singing in her characteristic low tenor.

On December 3, 1976, someone tried to take Bob Marley's life. He was shot twice, but still played two days later. People asked him why he still performed and didn't rest and he said, "The people who are making this world worse don't take a day off, how can I?" Bob Marley tried to make the world a better place through music and I plan on doing that someday.
