Patti Boulaye: Aretha & Me
In this fascinating show, Patti Boulaye compares and contrasts her life with the ‘Queen of Soul’, Aretha Franklin, who had a celebrated career including 17 Top 10 pop singles and 20 number 1 R&B hits during her 5 decades of recording.
Patti will be singing some of her favourite numbers including Respect, I’d Rather Go Blind, Say A Little Prayer, Chain of Fools and Think, as well as many more lesser known Aretha songs.
Patti recently published her remarkable and moving autobiography, The Faith of a Child, that charts her riveting life story through wealth, poverty and civil war, to show-business stardom and success in Britain and her birth country, Nigeria. 2019 also marks the 48th Anniversary of Patti’s West End debut in the musical, Hair.
Patti, who came to prominence as a singer winning the British ITV talent show New Faces(making history by becoming the only contestant ever to receive the maximum 120 points), was awarded an OBE for her charity work in the UK and Sub- Saharan Africa in 2016.
