Experience the heart and soul of the iconic Aretha Franklin as Australia’s own ‘Soul Mama’ Angie Narayan presents an unmissable and unique show combining storytelling, song and soul.
R•E•S•P•E•C•T© is the ultimate tribute to the undisputed Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Showcasing her greatest hits over the last 50 years, R•E•S•P•E•C•T is a masterful piece of storytelling; journeying through the Diva’s life from her siblings’ perspective, exploring relationships, the church and the music industry.
Joining Angie on stage are accomplished vocalists Sean Ikin, Shelley Davies and Ellen Reed, of The Voice, together with an energetic band. A mind, body and soul experience, Angie digs deep into her own deeply personal connection to Aretha as we journey through her life of love, tragedy and triumph.
Crafted to be an intimate experience, the journey begins with a bang in the 1960s, as Angie and the band take you back in time kicking off the evening where Aretha’s career all began. An immersive show experience, the band will blow audiences away with big energy, authentic outfits and truly entertaining repartee. Angie not only sings from the timeless Aretha songbook, she sings the praises of a woman who was a powerful figure for feminism and civil rights, in an era of discrimination and racism.
Embodying the spirit of this bold and phenomenal woman, those lucky enough to see Angie perform are raving about the singer’s inimitable channeling of Aretha. This is set to be an earth shattering ‘Aretha’ experience!
