Come and celebrate our tribute to the Queen Of Soul and learn of her contributions to Black Culture. As a youth, Mr. Shelley witnessed Aretha's gospel concerts. Hear about her impassioned, spiritual, evangelical performances.


The legendary Aretha Franklin was one of the most beloved and iconic singers in music history. She began performing gospel as a child with her father Rev. C.L. Franklin and her sisters. Her powerful voice and piano playing were a mesmerizing combination for the Christian Church. Aretha began a recording career with Columbia Records in the early 1960s, but with no success. But when Atlantic Records offered her a contract in 1967 as a soul singer, it was the perfect blend of soulful ballads, gospel vocals and the Memphis Horn section. Chart topping hit records included "Think", "I Never Loved A Man", "Dr. Feelgood", "Chain Of Fools", "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman", and the classic Otis Redding penned "Respect", the song for which Aretha will be best remembered.
