In 2004, Aretha Franklin brought the house down in the original Hancher Auditorium. Now, we invite her towering spirit into the new Hancher with a multi-media tribute performance by created by Damien Sneed--who toured with Franklin late in her career and developed a stronger mentor/mentee relationship with the soul legend--and an accomplished collection of jazz, gospel, and soul musicians. Gospel music legend and four-time Grammy Award-winner (not to mention her multiple Stellar and GMA Dove Awards) Karen Clark Sheard will bring her signature, one-of-a-kind multi-octave vocal range and musicality to the stage in honor of Aretha as well.
