Toshin - Line Up

Toshín

Much loved Irish RnB/Soul star Toshín is proud to present a very special tribute to one of her all-time musical heroes; Aretha Franklin.

“Aretha has made a big mark on my music. Her lyrics have not only inspired me but also guided me through everyday life. I have always aspired to be just like Aretha. Watching Respect, the movie over and over, further confirmed the love I have for her and gave me the confidence to pay tribute to this queen”

With the challenging times, we’re in, Toshín believes the show will really lift the spirits of both Aretha and non-Aretha fans, and allow us to forget for an evening what’s going on in the world right now! The show won’t just be a typical tribute gig, Toshín will be giving an expertly tuned mixture of Aretha’s hits combined with the full Toshín live band show experience!

For fans of: Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Etta James, The Supremes
