Motown Legends Gospel Choir: Aretha Franklin Tribute

In honor of the late Aretha Franklin and the musical legacy she built on the bedrock of Detroit gospel traditions, the Motown Legends Gospel Choir will perform a tribute recital in the historic DIA Auditorium. Directed by Joan Belgrave and featuring Rosalind Ashford-Holmes and  Annette Beard-Helton (of the original Vandellas) and the great Thornetta Davis, the Motown Legeds Gospel Choir will deliver audiences back to the Queen of Soul’s source of inspiration. 


Black History Month programs are made possible by the generous support of Arn and Nancy Tellem.


Friday Night Live! is generously supported by the DTE Energy Foundation and your tri-county millage investment in the DIA.​
