A Night of Respect and Wonder: Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder Sung by AViiDA

Sunday 14 May 6.00pm

The undisputed Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin and Music legend Stevie Wonder will be celebrated in a special performance event, An Evening of Respect And Wonder: Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin Sung by AViiDA.

In this must see performance, AViiDA conjures soulful interpretations of Stevie and Aretha’s most memorable and signature songs, including “Natural Woman, Think, Respect, Say a Little Prayer and Chain of Fools from Aretha’s catalogue, plus “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, Superstition, Master Blaster, For Once in My Life and Sir Duke from Stevie’s masterful collection of songs. In a two hour performance, audiences can also expect to hear other favourites and unforgettable songs from both artists repetoires.

“Aretha Franklin is the personification of the word DIVA. We all aspire to be as good as her, tell stories as well as her, portray emotions as perfectly as she does with one note. Aretha transcends, race, rank and gender. When you hear her name you know without a doubt she is the Queen of Sou. All hail the Queen” – Paula

“If I could have a small portion of the career that Stevie Wonder has had, I would die happy. He has danced across genres and music charts from Rock n Roll, R&B, gospel to pop and Soul, leaving his mark on each of them. There are no other words to describe his innocence, playfulness, poise and talent, but “Wonderful”. – Clay

AViiDA will tour An Evening of Respect and Wonder across Australia in 2017, launching the show in one of Perth’s most coveted venues Ellington Jazz Club in May 2017. The Duo will also release a compilation album of selected recordings from the music greats to coincide with their new live show experience, which audiences won’t want to miss!

Paula Parore and Clay Darius formed AViiDA in 2014 and since then haven’t looked back. Both accomplished Soul, R&B, and blues singers in their own right, coming together as a musical and life partnership has taken them on a journey that has given their individual and collective vocal styles a new energy. A powerhouse duo, the pair have a varied list of local, national and international performing credits to their name, both on the theatrical and music stages. They both perform regularly in the great Perth venues, and are in high demand for corporate and events across Australia and New Zealand. With a recent album launch and Australian tour under their belt – AViiDA is to take on the world.
