Aretha Franklin

As is her wont, Aretha Franklin will sing a few of her classics and showcase her considerable interpretive powers at the grandstand. Don’t be surprised, though, if the Queen of Soul chooses other singers’ hits, such as Jackie Wilson’s “Higher and Higher” or Barbra Streisand’s “The Way We Were,” or such modern material as Keyshia Cole’s “I Remember” or Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” (which she has recorded for a collection of covers, possibly due this fall). Aretha played a generous 100 minutes at the Wisconsin State Fair two weeks ago. Let’s say a little prayer for that kind of performance. The Four Tops, featuring only one original member, Duke Fakir, will open with their Motown classics. Jon Bream
