When: Fri., June 9, Sat., June 10 and Sun., June 11 2017
Sure, this inaugural weekend which celebrates Detroit’s musical heritage presents a cleaned-up and streamlined version of our history, with everything going down within walking distance of the gleaming towers of its corporate sponsors. But hey, those sponsors have made this event free. Here we have a spectacular event which lobs a pleasant softball in the air; it’s fun for the whole family. And we have the undisputed Queen of Soul! All hail, for she still stuns, whenever she opens her mouth to get lost inside of a song. Aretha Franklin is performing in her artistic birthplace, the city where she first sang in her dad’s church. Do not miss this.
