Formed in the Baptist congregations of Detroit, Aretha Franklin’s expressive and powerful vocals propelled her to international stardom. Musician, vocalist, and composer Damien Sneed toured with Aretha in the later years of her life, developing a strong mentee relationship with the soul legend. In Tribute to Aretha Franklin: The Queen of Soul, Sneed pays homage to Franklin with fresh takes on her most cherished hits including “Respect,” “Knew You Were Waiting,” “Precious Memories,” “Think,” “Daydreaming,” “Freeway,” “Natural Woman,” and others. Backed by an accomplished cast of jazz, gospel, and soul musicians and vocalists, along with four-time GRAMMY Award-winner and multiple Stellar and GMA Dove Award winner Karen Clark Sheard. Damien Sneed’s multi-media tribute will be a tender and spiritual reflection.
