Signed, Sealed, Delivered

the music of Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin

31 May 2018

After the fun we had presenting you the music of George Michael with the talented WAAPA Gospel Choir earlier this year, we thought why stop there? After speaking with Matt Allen (founder of the WAAPA Gospel Choir) it was clear, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin were next in line to get the PSO treatment.

Join the Perth Symphony Strings, Horns and rhythm section with the WAAPA Gospel Choir as they celebrate the music of soul legends – Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin at the Astor Theatre on 31st May, 2018.

Great timing too, as Aretha prepares to get back into the studio and record what she says will be her last album, with good friend Stevie Wonder.

“Later this year, the legendary soul singer will return to the studio to make a new record. She described the album as “kind of multi-(directional).” “We’re not pigeonholed to any one thing,” she added. She recruited her old pal Stevie Wonder to help with her latest project. “Of course, several of the songs are going to be produced by Stevie (Wonder),” she said. “There’s only one Stevie, right?””
