22ND ANNUAL HOLIDAY JAM
QUEEN OF SOUL CHRISTMAS
A TRIBUTE TO ARETHA FRANKLIN
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2018
142 THROCKMORTON THEATRE, MILL VALLEY, CA
“Aretha knew how to touch the human heart, and the psyche, and the soul of a man and a woman, and just make them feel something that maybe they haven't felt before.” — Narada Michael Walden
Narada began working with Aretha in the 1980s on the “Who’s Zoomin’ Who” album that included such hits as “Freeway of Love” and the title track. He went on to produce four albums and over 15 songs for Aretha including the hit duet with George Michael, “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me).” They were working together on songs for a new album at the time of her death.
At this year's Holiday Jam we honor the spirit and career of Aretha Franklin, with Narada, the NMWF singers, and special guests, including members of Aretha’s touring band— Bassist Ralphe Armstrong and Pianist Nicholas Rolfe!
Narada Michael Walden is pleased to announce the international release of EVOLUTION. The forthcoming album represents a change of direction for Narada, one that brings him back to his roots in Dance and Club Music, Funk and Soul. Available October 30th 2015 on all major digital retailers and select stores.
