RESPECT – The music of Aretha Franklin, with vocalist Jennifer Hanson, Andrina Turenne, Heitha Forsyth & Ego Spank

The undisputed Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin is synonymous with songs like Chain of Fools, Natural Woman, Freeway of Love, and RESPECT. Her lyrics were a harbinger of modern-day feminism: strong, independent, demanding of equality & freedom, sung with a voice that would accept nothing less. Joining the WJO for this show is a tour-de-force of local talent: vocalists Jennifer Hanson, Andrina Turenne, and Heitha Forsyth alongside Murray Pulver, Marc Arnould, Daniel Roy & Gilles Fournier, known collectively as Ego Spank.
