“Lady Odé had the fortunate opportunity to perform a reading of her play during the Nina Simone Estate’s Ten Day Tribute. Afterwards, Nina Simone’s sister Frances Fox stated, “(Ozara Odé) You have captured the essence of my sister,” and the legendary singer’s daughter Simone stated, “My mother’s spirit has rested in others before; right now her spirit is in you.” Simone also renamed Lady Odé, “Peaches” after hearing her rendition of “Four Women".” - Nikki Wade
“I remember it like it was yesterday. It seemed as though she appeared from out of nowhere and took the stage with a presence that demanded respect. It was obvious that this was an impromptu performance as she briefly spoke with the keyboardist to explain what to play and the key that it should be played in. When he didn’t catch on immediately she began to hum a smooth melodic tone that could have been the strums of a bass that I felt in the pit of my stomach. Before I knew it she belted out a sound. “Most people don’t know what to do with me”, she explained. Due to her unique rich sound that doesn’t fit into a box and mirrors a classically trained vocalist with ranges out of this world...” - Clyde Anderson
