CONCERT: The Soul Experience
January 18 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Aretha Franklin, along with other soul luminaries Marian Anderson and Mahalia Jackson will be central to a program on Friday, January 18th at The Hoffman Center in Manzanita, exploring the history of soul music and the black experience in America.
LaNicia Williams–who, like Franklin, learned to sing in church–will perform songs of these trailblazing women while also paying homage to her own upbringing. “I’ll also give some oral history of each person,” says Williams. “I’ll share how they fought through the intolerance of their time and how they were able to help give life to a movement of civil rights and soul music.”
Tickets for the event are $20. For more info: http://hoffmanarts.org
