Aretha Franklin with Jonathan Slocumb
The ‘Queen of Soul’ returns to Los Angeles for a one-night-only performance on August 2nd, 2015.
She is both a 20th and 21st century musical and cultural icon known the world over simply by her first name: Aretha. The reigning and undisputed “Queen Of Soul” has created an amazing legacy that spans an incredible six decades, from her first recording as a teenage gospel star, to her current RCA Records release, ARETHA FRANKLIN SINGS THE GREAT DIVA CLASSICS, which is her highest-charting album since 1985 and is also her highest debut ever on the Billboard 200, surpassing the No. 30 bow of 1998's “A Rose Is Still a Rose.” The first single from this collection of classic hits is a powerful rendition of Adele’s worldwide hit "Rolling in the Deep."
