at Brookside Theatre, Romford

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

In this fantastic and unforgettable show, award-winning singer and musical theatre legend, Patti Boulaye compares and contrasts her life with that of the 'Queen of Soul', Aretha Franklin, who enjoyed a celebrated career spanning five decades, spawning 17 Top 10 singles and 20 No.1 R&B classic hits.

Patti will perform many of her favourite Aretha Franklin numbers including Respect, I'd Rather Go Blind, Say A Little Prayer, Chain of Fools and Think.

Patti has published her remarkable and moving autobiography ‘The Faith of A Child’ that charts her riveting life story through wealth, poverty and near death in the Biafran civil war, to show-business stardom and success in Britain and Nigeria. Patti came to prominence in 1978 when she became the only contestant on the ITV talent show, New Faces, to receive the maximum 120 points. She was later awarded an OBE for her charity work in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
