Remembering the Queen of Soul at Essence Festival 2012
By Michael Lewis | Austin, Texas
Remembering Aretha Franklin. This is a look back at Aretha Franklin’s 2012 Essence Music Fest Main Stage appearance in New Orleans; where her performance included a medley of her greatest hits and a tribute to Whitney Houston.
This is Aretha Franklin speaking with me and the media in the press room right before her performance on the main stage at 9:40 PM.
This was the Queen of Soul third time performing at the Essence Fest. Franklin was honored with the “Power Award.” that year.
There will be an Essence Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle tribute with Ledisi, MC Lyte, Morris Day, Brandi, Doug E. Fresh and Sheila E on Friday, July 5, 2019, at the Superdome.
