The moment my Mother dropped the needle on an Aretha Franklin album and “Spanish Harlem” began to play, I had a soul shaking, earth moving awakening! It was the moment I knew I wanted to be a singer. As a 5 year old, I was unaware of the impact this amazing voice would have on me and as it turned out, on the world.
 
Aretha’s voice was truly out of this world and a benchmark for vocalists all over the world. No genre was off limits! Jazz, Gospel, Soul, Rock, Pop… even Operatic Arias were no match for this formidable woman and her endless range.
 
With the recent news of Aretha’s passing, it felt like the right thing to honour a woman who has touched the hearts of so many people. 
Aretha has been more than just a page in My songbook of life, she was my first ‘Teacher’.  Please join us in remembering the Queen of Soul at a venue near you.
If any of you would like to share your remembrances of Aretha on the night, we would love to hear from you, too. Please come and share this celebration with us.
All Hail Queen Aretha!!! 
 

NINA FERRO (AUST/UK)
“A fabulous performer with a knockout voice!” Tony Bennett

When you hear Nina Ferro perform, should you not quite believe your ears, then put your faith in Tony Bennett’s immaculate taste. After she had supported him in concert, the great vocalist said of Nina Ferro: “She’s a fabulous performer with a knockout voice.” But you don’t need Mr. Bennett’s highly discerning musical ear to realize he is right. Once she starts to sing, you’ll know instantly that you are in the presence of a formidable talent. Just check your vital signs. Goosebumps? Check. Spine tingling? Absolutely. Emotions uplifted? You bet! 

Australian born Nina Ferro is a multi award-winning vocalist, songwriter, session and recording artist whose powerful, evocative voice, stunning vocal range and captivating stage presence have earned her an enviable international reputation. With 8 solo albums to her credit, Guest appearances on ARIA award winning albums and a performance history longer than ones own arm, it’s no wonder Nina is one of the most sought after vocalists on the international circuit. Whether she’s swinging out a Jazz standard or belting out a soul ballad, there is no underestimating her unequaled talents!

After 11 years of living in the UK, Nina has now chosen to share her time between the two cities she loves, Melbourne and London. Nina continues to tour the world performing at festivals, clubs, concert halls and arenas and has appeared regularly on TV and radio throughout the USA, UK, Europe, Australia, Asia and the Middle East. Nina has performed alongside artists such as Tony Bennett, Hugh Jackman, Jose Feliciano, Jessica Mauboy, Zac Brown Band, Renee Geyer, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Vanessa Amorosi, Jon Stevens, Guy Sebastian, Kate Ceberano, John Farnham, Kyle Eastwood, Billy Ocean, Ricky Martin, Chris Botti, Dave Sanborn, Frank McComb, Juanes, Chick Corea, The Zac Brown Band, The Cat Empire, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, The Commitments and many, many  more…..Nina has opened as the special guest artist for Grammy Award winning industry legends Gregory Porter, Charles Aznavour and Neil Sedaka. Not to mention wowing not only the judges but also the Aussie audiences when she appeared on Season 5 of The Voice Australia (2016) making it all the way to the top 32!
