No one has ever disputed that Detroit’s Aretha Franklin, who turned 75 on March 25, deserves the title “Queen of Soul.” Her passion and power are of course rooted in gospel which she began singing as a child at the church her father the Rev. C.L. Franklin, headed. She began singing R&B as a teenager and got off to a slow start. But by the time she was 30 audiences had warmed to her roof-raising style and she had racked up a dozen number one hits which have become classics.
Once again the Music Box Supper Club is tipping its hat to her birthday by hosting another great Detroit-based blues and soul singer, Thornetta Davis, 21 years Aretha’s junior. Davis will mix her own tunes with some of those Aretha hits. Admission is $20.
