“Pretty Woman” stops a while at the Fisher Theatre
Pretty woman. Those two words may bring a couple of things to mind. First, you may start humming the iconic song by Roy Orbison, or you may be thinking about the classic rom-com starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. Both the movie and the song have inspired a new stage production that is making a stop at the Fisher Theatre from November 2nd through November 14th.
New solo version of Aretha song about race, faith released
NEW YORK A never-before-heard solo version of the late Aretha Franklins riveting and powerful collaboration with Mary J. Blige about faith and race, 2006s Never Gonna Break My Faith, has arrived on Juneteenth. Never Gonna Break My Faith resonates today, featuring lyrics like: You can lie to a child with a smiling face/Tell me that color aint about a race.The world is very different now. It deserves to be an anthem.Never Gonna Break My Faith won best gospel performance at the 50th Grammy Awards in 2008, marking Franklins 18th and final Grammy win. This solo version has been sitting on my computer for years, and when I heard Clive was making a film on Arethas life, I sent this version to him. Im so glad its being released, the world needs this right now.
