Aretha Franklin tribute act by Mica Paris coming to Dubai Opera

The UK Soul sensation will sing the hits of Aretha Franklin during a one-off performance

Aretha Franklin tribute act by Mica Paris coming to Dubai Opera

All we’re asking for is a little respect, and Dubai Opera is prepared to sock it to us.

Singing sensation Mica Paris will be performing the hits of Aretha Franklin in a tribute concert at Dubai Opera on Thursday November 14, and it promises to bring the house down.

Known for her iconic R.E.S.P.E.C.T song, Aretha passed away on 16 August 2018 at the age of 76, leaving an extraordinary legacy of timeless songs for generations. And who better to do them justice than UK soul sensation Paris?

This will be the UK performer’s second performance at Dubai Opera after the huge success of her tribute concert to Ella Fitzgerald “Mica Sings Ella" in 2017, and the show promises nostalgia by the bucket-load.

Paris is one of the UK’s most respected female Soul singers with a career full of top-ten hit singles, a platinum-selling album and previous collaborations with the likes of Prince and Jools Holland, leading to a career in the West End, playing a lead role in the UK tour of Chicago and in Love Me Tender, the Elvis Presley musical.

Aretha Franklin won 18 Grammys, had 17 Top Ten US chart hits and sold over 75 million records over a music career spanning six decades, making her one of the best-selling artists of all time and Dubai Opera is paying homage to the musical icon.

It’s time to bow down to the queen(s) of soul.
