Queen of Soul honoured

When the great Aretha Franklin died last year, the entire music world mourned her loss. Now jazz and soul diva Janine Johnson is touring a show that pays the ultimate ‘Respect’ to Aretha, delivering all her best-loved hits with all the heart and power of the Queen of Soul herself.

Janine’s outstanding voice has led to professional collaborations including George Michael, Take That, Paloma Faith, Kaiser Chiefs, Ian Shaw, Bobby McFerrin, Cool Million, Ray Davies and many more. She trained in Musical Theatre at Guildford School of Acting and her natural enthusiasm and passion is more than evident in the roles she brings to life on stage, enabling her to pull in the audience and ensuring they go home having had an unforgettable night of top-class music and performance.

Janine is appearing at Oakengates Theatre @ The Place at 7.30pm on Friday 25 January – visit theplacetelford.com for full details.
