Be there as a local treasure pays tribute to Aretha Franklin as part of an ongoing Wexner Center residency.
When Aretha superfan DJ Moxy approached their close friend Sharon Udoh about collaborating on a performance tribute to the late Queen of Soul, the pianist, arranger, gospel-raised singer, and force behind beloved band Counterfeit Madison welcomed the challenge. “And it has brought me nothing but pure joy,” says Udoh. Featuring Udoh and an ensemble of 20 musicians and performers, this evening at Columbus’s historic Lincoln Theatre promises to be a high point of the 2020 cultural calendar.
The recipient of a 2019–20 Wexner Center Artist Residency Award, Udoh combines vocals that seemingly erupt from the center of the earth with a stage presence that somehow feels both dangerous and kind. As part of her residency, Udoh has also participated in the center’s Pages arts and literacy program for teens and shared a bill with choreographer and dancer nora chipaumire for two 2019 performances at the Wex.
