Aretha Franklin, The QUEEN DIVA Still Reigns!

Crowd Was Not Into It, Too Short
Adults, Everyone, Families
Aretha Franklin, 'The Queen of Soul', live at Caesars, Atlantic City, NJ, June 20, 2015. Ms Franklin will ALWAYS be the Queen of Soul and at 72, her VOICE, what a great instrument...she still got it! She sang a medley of songs, she took us to church, a full version of 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' and she gave the crowd a bonus, when she sat down at the piano. The show was closed out with her Signature Song...R-E-S-P-E-C-T. She let the crowd know it was their house. If you wanted to get up and dance, it was okay. She's a humble woman who testified that God has been good to her. The crowd was a little dead, the seniors could not move the way they did back in the day and had they shouted her name or asked for an encore, she would have given the crowd a bonus song, but being the Queen, Ms Franklin put on a GREAT show, the Backup Singers did a tremendous job and the Band was TIGHT! Aretha's transitions from chest to head voice was SMOOOOTH as glass where you didn't even notice it. BRAVO QUEEN!
During the set changes and close out of the show, the band should play medleys of Ms Franklin's songs and the clown music during her exit, has got to go. Maybe in the next cities, the promoter will sell some memorabilia like back in the day, pictures, booklets or a tee shirt of Ms Franklin. Those of us who grew up on Aretha and die hard fans will buy it. They did not advertise the concert on the radio until 2 weeks before the event, but I was still able to get good seats.
It looks like none of the casinos in Atlantic offer free parking any more.
