New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents the reigning “Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin. She is both a 20th and 21st century musical and cultural icon known the world over. The undisputed “Queen of Soul” has created an amazing legacy that spans six decades, from her first recording as a teenage gospel star. Her many classics include “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “Chain of Fools,” “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)”; her own compositions “Think,” “Daydreaming” and “Call Me”; her definitive versions of “Respect” and “I Say a Little Prayer”; and “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me),” her worldwide, chart-topping duet with George Michael.

She is the recipient of the U.S.A.’s highest civilian honor – the Presidential Medal of Freedom – and 18 GRAMMY Awards. Aretha Franklin’s powerful, distinctive, gospel-honed vocal style has influenced countless singers across multi-generations, justifiably earning her Rolling Stone magazine’s No. 1 placement on the list of “The Greatest Singers of All Time.”

Tickets to see Aretha Franklin go on sale Friday, December 8th at 10 AM, visit NJPAC.org or 888.GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722) or the NJPAC Box Office.
