he First Lady of Soul — and last of her generation — parted ways with us back in August, a profound loss that reverberated throughout the music community and beyond. It’s only fitting, then, that this year’s Multicultural Black History concert will center on an Aretha Franklin tribute. As with previous installments, which have included performances from The Reminders and Chanel, the sixth annual donation-only event coincides with Black History Month, and will feature a broad range of artistic expression, including dance, poetry, fashion and historical reenactments. In addition to Roshay Neil and Lisa Rudolph’s aforementioned Aretha tribute, this year’s concert will also feature Tony Exum Jr., E Da La, Little G and a salute to gospel singer Shirley Caesar from Miss Bobbi and the Christian House of Prayer Choir.
