Aretha Franklin - Bass Concert Hall - April 19, 2007

I'm really sorry to do this to the "Queen of Soul", but she will take a back seat today... to none other than Steve Jobs and the iPhone. I squirt everytime I think of the iPhone. I mean the thing is amazing... 3.5 inches! 4.8 ounces! 320 by 480 at 160 ppi! touch screen! OS X! 8 GB! GSM! Wi-Fi! Bluetooth! on and on... I need to breathe...

OK. Aretha Franklin @ Bass Concert Hall on April 19th @ 8pm. Tix here.

More info:

Aretha Louise Franklin (born March 25, 1942) is an American gospel, soul and R&B singer born in Memphis, Tennessee, but raised in Detroit, Michigan. She has been called for many years "The Queen Of Soul", but many also call her "Lady Soul," as well as the more affectionate "Sister Re". She is renowned for her soul and R&B recordings but is also adept at jazz, rock, blues, pop, gospel, and even opera. She is generally regarded as one of the top vocalists ever, due to her ability to inject whatever she may be singing about with passion, soul and sheer conviction. Franklin is the second most honored female singer in Grammy history after Alison Krauss. Ms. Franklin has won nineteen competitive Grammys (including an unprecedented eleven for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, eight of them consecutive), and the state of Michigan has declared her voice to be a wonder.
