A heartfelt tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, will delight audiences in Windsor this month.

Lifelong Franklin fan and powerhouse vocalist, Letitia George, will take to the stage at the Theatre Royal on January 23 to perform a tribute to arguably one of the greatest singer’s of her generation.

Aretha Franklin’s extraordinary career as a singer and songwriter spanned over 60 years.

She rose from church gospel singer to international stardom at a young age and is widely accepted as the finest female soul singer of our time.

Her talent has always been unequalled - and massive hits including A Natural Woman, Say A Little Prayer, Think, I Never Love A Man, and Respect will ensure that Aretha’s legacy will continue forever.

Letitia, meanwhile, was thrust into the spotlight after featuring on series four of BBC One’s flagship talent show, The Voice UK - where she became a member of team Ricky and soared her way to the knockout rounds. The performer also presents the radio show ‘The C Word’ on BBC Radio Coventry every Monday evening, discussing the issues affecting young people in Coventry and Warwickshire.

And while Letitia will always be remembered for her breathtaking performances on The Voice, she has gone on to forge an enviable reputation as one of the most passionate soul singers around.

Aretha’s death in August last year sent shockwaves through fans the world over, but it inspired Letitia to attempt the seemingly impossible - recreate her unique vocals on the stage.

Julie Sweeney, who co-founded Sweeney Entertainments, which organises the show was lucky enough to see her perform live in New York last year. She said: “I am so delighted to be producing this show. Nobody will ever replace the Queen of Soul but this is our way of paying tribute to the greatest soul singer of all time.”
