The 16th Annual American Music Masters Series honoring Aretha Franklin
Tuesday, November 1, 2011
(ooo!) What you want. (ooo!) Baby I got it.
And if want you want it a pair of tickets to the 16th Annual American Music Master Series Event honoring the one and only Aretha Franklin, baby, the plum has got it.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Case Western University, through the American Music Masters series titled, Lady Soul: The Life and Music of Aretha Franklin, will have a week long celebration of events to honor the first woman ever inducted into the Rock Hall.
Additional information on the full week of events, which started yesterday, can be found here, but I'm most looking forward to Jump To It: DJs play tribute to Aretha! at the House of Blues Friday, 11/4 and the Tribute Concert Saturday 11/5 at PlayhouseSquare's State Theater.
The tribute concert will feature performances by Dennis Edwards of the Temptations, Ronald Isley of the Isley Brothers, Spooner Oldham, Chaka Khan, Ms. Lauryn Hill (!!!!), Carla Cook, Idol's Melinda Doolittle, Mike Farris, the great Cissy Houston and more.
That "more" also includes Ms. Aretha Franklin herself - right here in Cleveland.
And I (and the Rock Hall) want you to give you a pair of tickets to the Tribute Concert.
