It is a finely crafted performance, comprised of some of the most superior musicians on offer in Melbourne, and led by a diva with soul music embedded deep within her own. It's so much more than a tribute show; it's the reincarnation of a powerful musical spirit, and an irresistible pleasure to experience." - Melbourne Arts & Fashion

TREAT YOURSELF to a night of high energy, gut wrenching Soul Music!  If you are not afraid of losing yourself while getting down to the gritty, funky and sweet sounds of Soul music, then you cannot afford to miss “The Soul Of Aretha Franklin” show!  It features original artist, Florelie Escano and her talented 9-piece ensemble that includes a horn section and backing vocalists.  They will present over 1.5 scorching hours of Aretha Franklin's biggest hits spanning over three decades.

The undisputed queen of soul to this day remains a household name thanks to her massive catalogue of Number 1 hits, including ‘Chain of Fools’, ‘Think’ and the most iconic of all – ‘RESPECT’. Aretha Franklin’s incomparable voice and compelling delivery is instantly mesmerizing.  She has influenced a great big number of artists including Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and of course, Melbourne’s own, Florelie Escano. Citing Aretha as her biggest inspiration, Florelie is a passionate vocalist with a powerful 4-octave range.  She writes and arranges her own music and has released two vinyl 45 records with songs receiving praise and airplay on stations such as Triple J, PBS and Triple R, as well as international spins in the UK, Spain and Italy.

Florelie Escano & Her Soul Orchestra have played sold out shows this year and now is your turn to  witness the energy, the passion and the musical talent that Florelie Escano and her equally passionate soul band will bring you.

...what a naturally sensational voice!
