She is one of the most influential and important voices in the history of American music, with a repertoire that spans pop, soul, jazz, rock, blues and gospel.
In 2009, Franklin was named the #1 Vocalist of All Time by Rolling Stone magazine. It is her rich legacy of recordings that are a testament to the power, majesty and genius of this one-of-a-kind artist of the first order.
And in her only New York appearance this fall, she’s performing as part of the Pepe Infiniti Concert Series at the Westchester County Center in White Plains. “We’re going to be witnesses to history,” said WMConcerts’ CEO Irwin Kornfeld. “It’s Aretha. And, with our new acoustics at the County Center, it’s going to be a very special evening. The minute we were presented with the opportunity to produce this show, we jumped at it.”
According to Billboard, Franklin has been in the studio recording “an album of great diva signature songs” co-produced by Clive Davis, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmunds and Danger Mouse.
When interviewed at his pre-GRAMMY Awards party, Davis promised that fans would “hear that voice, that incredible national treasure voice of all time” sing classic songs.
Better yet, on March 27th, she’ll be performing live in White Plains, singing old and new hits at the Westchester County Center.
