After soul songstress Christine Anu launched her REWIND – The Aretha Franklin Songbook tour at The Basement in May this year, she has been touring around the country, receiving rave reviews and playing to packed houses. Now, Christine brings REWIND back to The Basement, due to popular demand, for one night only in October. Don’t miss this extraordinary show as Christine honours the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin.
In this must-see performance, Anu conjures soulful interpretations of Aretha’s most memorable songs including the signature tunes Respect and (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman as well as Chain of Fools, Rock Steady, Today I Sing The Blues and many other unforgettable classic melodies. She’ll also traverse tracks from her own incredible career including songs like the iconic My Island Home.
“Nobody says it or sings it better than Ms. Aretha Franklin. She is one of my greatest influences and an inspiration to black pride and feminine empowerment. I truly believe she is the greatest soul singer of our time!” says Anu, who provides all the grace, glitz and vocals of a true diva and is sure to captivate audiences from the start.
Anu launched REWIND – The Aretha Franklin Songbook to coincide with Aretha Franklin’s 70th Birthday and it has since played in dozens of cities. Christine will also release an album of the same name, paying homage to Aretha’s music.
