RESPECT: A Tribute to Aretha Franklin
It takes a cast of three sensational vocalists to tell the FULL story of the one and only Queen of Soul. In her early childhood, Aretha’s father led the Friendship Baptist Church on Buffalo’s East Side before permanently relocating to Detroit, where she first sang during church services at age 10. Aretha Franklin went on to define contemporary gospel, blues, R&B, jazz, rock and soul over the last six decades. Ron Spigelman conducts.
