Rehearsal for the upcoming Aretha Franklin Tribute is in full swing as performers and show producers on an up-tempo beat, work to show their love and appreciation for the Queen of Soul. The show is being directed and produced by local community leader and director, Grady Faulkner. Adding sprinkles to this treat is Show Time, a popular local band, stepping up to the plate to help Faulkner put together a great show.
