SPOTLIGHT ON ARETHA FRANKLIN
AUGUST 20 - SEPTEMBER 13, 2020
Directed by Kamilah Long
Starring Whitney Reed
Aretha Franklin was an American singer, songwriter, pianist, and civil rights activist. Franklin began her career as a child singing gospel, and at 18 embarked on a secular musical career. She later found acclaim and commercial success with hit songs such as “Respect,” “Chain of Fools,” “Think,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You),” and “I Say a Little Prayer,” which propelled her past her musical peers. By the end of the 1960s, Aretha Franklin had come to be known as “The Queen of Soul.”
