How could we cheer up Nina Simone fans about the documentary What Happened, Miss Simone? losing to Amy at the Oscars last Sunday?

Well, how about this: EW can exclusively reveal that Nina, a years-in-the-making biopic of the so-called “High Priestess of Soul,” will be released to theaters and on VOD, April 22.

Directed by Cynthia Mort, the movie stars Guardians of the Galaxy and Avatar actress Zoe Saldana as Simone and Selma actor David Oyelowo as her assistant-turned-manager, Clifton Henderson.
