She was, is, and always will be, The Queen of Soul. The legendary Aretha Franklin’s music touched countless generations and her voice stretched to all corners of the globe, providing comfort, celebration, and inspiration to those who listened to her artistry.
Now, Feinstein’s/54 Below is honoring the late Ms. Franklin with 54 Celebrates Aretha Franklin, a celebration of her music, sung by those legends of Broadway whom she inspired.
Audiences will expect to hear Aretha’s greatest songs, like “Natural Woman,” “R-E-S-P-E-C-T,” “You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman,” and so many more, sung by the legends of Broadway who call Aretha their Queen.
