Aretha Franklin looks back on career, time in Buffalo prior to Seneca Niagara show


Niagara Gazette — With all of the awards she has received I asked Franklin which one means the most. She replied with the type of humility she always displays.

“I appreciate all of the awards. They are all special because people don’t have to give you anything.”

And I appreciated the interview; it was a very special moment for me.

The legendary Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, performs Saturday March 2 at the Seneca Niagara Casino Showroom at 8:00 p.m. A very limited amount tickets were available at press time through Ticketmaster.

IF YOU GO • WHAT: Aretha Franklin • WHEN: 8 p.m. Saturday • WHERE: Seneca Niagara Casino Showroom
