Comedian Fred Thomas opens for Legendary Aretha Franklin, March 31 at the Chicago Theatre.
"It was simply amazing to sit backstage and watch this legend work! 75 years young still giving you a solid hour and a half show. By the way, she can still pound the ivories!" Comedian Fred Thomas stated on his Facebook page.
Aretha Franklin is a musical and cultural icon known around the world by her first name and as the undisputed, reigning "Queen of Soul." She has created an amazing legacy that spans an incredible six decades, from her first recording as a teenage gospel star, to her current RCA Records release, Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics.
