Featuring Cece Teneal ~ Renowned blues-centric soprano with a soul-stirring voice

The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, taught her listeners how to Think and demand Respect–while riding down the Freeway! In this production, award-winning songstress Cece Teneal takes music lovers on a trip down memory lane with stellar hits from Aretha Franklin’s 50-year musical entertainment legacy like: “Chain of Fools,” “Natural Woman,” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”

This musical experience created by Ms. Teneal will have attendees on the edge of their seats from start-to-finish, energized about the many life lessons imparted through Aretha Franklin’s music. In fact, Cece says, “as a child, singing along with Aretha’s records taught me how to skillfully use my voice as an instrument, appreciate the art and science of creating a music experience, and exuding excellence in musicality.”

Portrait of a Queen will be coming to a town near you. Stay Tuned for updates!!


…so I finally had a chance to see this lady perform and hear her powerful voice. I must say I enjoy an Entertainer that can not only sing but can also entertain and she certainly commanded the stage and worked it!
