SOUL QUEEN - Aretha Franklin Tribute

Fri 18 October 2019 at 8pm in Tyrrells at NST City

Join Cheyne "Queenie" Pride as she performs Aretha’s songs with a fantastic live band and vintage costuming. Weaving social history between numbers, this cool classy show not only affirms Aretha’s title of Queen of Soul, but also explains her significance in US history at that time, her link with the civil rights movement, and her family’s connection to Dr King. 

Queenie’s tribute goes through Aretha Franklin's musical journey from gospel, to the Columbia years (standards/jazz/pop) and rhythm & blues, to her breakout hit Atlantic album in 1967 "Never Loved A Man".

This show is the most vocally-challenging thing Queenie has ever done. From Aretha's 50s childhood gospel roots, to her worldwide-wide chart dominance in her 20s it’s a deeply personal roadtrip down memory lane, one Queenie will love sharing alongside a live band.

Tickets: £15
