8pm Thursday 12 September, Woden
Australia’s soul diva Christine Anu returns in 2019 with REWIND – The Aretha Franklin Songbook. Experience Christine’s powerful performance for the first time, or return to enjoy her soulful and sassy tunes once again.
Christine has entertained audiences sporadically over six years with her tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. With sell-out shows at venues across Australia, REWIND has received rave reviews with critics describing the show as an event that ‘captures and celebrates the high standard of live Australian music and artists today’, highlighting Christine’s performance as elegant, powerful and seductive. With such amazing reviews, it’s no surprise Christine is taking the show around the country for an encore tour to celebrate the great Queen of Soul who passed away in 2018.
REWIND – The Aretha Franklin Songbook has proven to be a special show, unlike anything Christine has done before. In this must-see performance, Christine delivers soulful interpretations of Aretha’s most memorable songs including the signature tunes Respect and (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman among other unforgettable Aretha classics.
Long-time fans will enjoy seeing Christine perform her signature hits including Island Home and Sunshine on a Rainy Day, songs that cemented her status as an Australian icon. New fans will enjoy the stylings of soul diva Aretha Franklin while being introduced to the diversity and raw talent of an Australian national treasure. “I would like to thank Aretha Franklin – her magic introduced me to a whole new audience and for this, I will forever love her,”” said Christine.
