Annie Crummer, Bella Kalolo, Ria Hall and Jackie Clarke pay tribute in song to the legendary Aretha Franklin.
In 1967, Aretha Franklin dropped her smash hit version of Respect and the world was never the same.
A soundtrack for a generation, Respect became a declaration from a strong, confident woman - as potent then as it is today.
The passing of the late great Aretha Franklin in 2018 signalled the end of an era but Aretha’s legacy of song lives on. Join Annie Crummer, Bella Kalolo, Ria Hall and Jackie Clarke as they sock it to you and pay tribute to the legendary Aretha Franklin. This is a night you won’t want to miss!
