Vanessa Haynes of Incognito Celebrates Aretha Franklin

Possessing one of the finest voices in contemporary British UK soul, Vanessa Haynes (Incognito) and her 10-piece band present a retrospective discography of music spanning several decades for this very special tribute that celebrates the life of the late and legendary Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin (1942-2018).

The long-reigning and undisputed “Queen of Soul” known for her iconic “ R.E.S.P.E.C.T” song had passed away on 16 August 2018 at the age of 76, leaving an extraordinary legacy of timeless songs for generations. Aretha Franklin won 18 Grammys, had 17 Top Ten US chart hits and sold over 75 million records over a music career spanning six decades, making her one of the best-selling artists of all time. Boisdale pays homage to the musical culture icon with an evening of her timeless hits performed by 90s pop sensation Cleopatra Higgins.
