A Tribute to Aretha Franklin: The Queen of Soul
Aretha Franklin is recognized as the most successful female recording artist in history, with 112 charted singles on Billboard, 18 Grammy Awards, and over 75 million records sold. Her legendary career rightfully earned her the title, “The Queen of Soul.” Through A Tribute to Aretha Franklin: The Queen of Soul, Damien Sneed, Franklin’s personally mentored musician, vocalist and composer, pays homage to the monarch herself. Among the show’s cherished hits are “Respect,” “Knew You Were Waiting,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Precious Memories,” “Think,” “Until You Come Back To Me,” “Daydreaming,” “Freeway,” “Natural Woman,” and others.
Joining the tour is four-time GRAMMY® Award-winner and multiple Stellar and GMA Dove Award winner Karen Clark Sheard. A gospel music legend and part of a musical dynasty, Clark Sheard is renowned throughout the music industry for her one-of-a-kind multi-octave vocal range and ability. Backed by an accomplished cast of jazz, gospel, and soul musicians and vocalists, Damien Sneed’s multi-media tribute to Aretha Franklin is a tender and spiritual reflection upon the life of an iconic industry titan.
