Musician, vocalist, and composer Damien Sneed toured along with Aretha, developing a strong mentee relationship with the soul legend.

Backed by an accomplished cast of jazz, gospel, and soul musicians and vocalists, Damien Sneed’s multi-media tribute will be a tender and spiritual reflection upon the life of an iconic industry titan.
