My 1st-ever thread, in honor of #ArethaHomecoming

In 2011 I got to perform, along with @aishatyler & @StephMillerShow on the @sexyliberaltour, at one of the most beautiful theaters in America, the Detroit Opera House. We found out Aretha wanted to come & bring 11 friends.
2. We had only planned on selling the orchestra section so we offered the queen & her court the entire mezzanine. We also offered her comps but she insisted on paying for the tickets for her entire party.
3. The orchestra section was packed & it was a spectacular crowd. Nobody knew who was sitting above them as the show began. Backstage we had agreed to hold the curtain until her entire group was seated.

This photo of Louis Farrakhan Sr., Rev Al, Rev Jackson and Bill Clinton is breathtaking. #ArethaHomegoing
They said Bill Clinton walked in and got a standing ovation. Years later the black community still loves Bill. Now imagine how we will look at the clown 🤡 sitting in the Oval Office now?

Our Editor-in-Chief @blacksnob is live at #ArethaFranklinFuneral and you’ll all be pleased to know that they did our auntie RIGHT.

The #QueenOfSoul is draped in a long gown, gold sequins and gold red bottom shoes. #ArethaHomegoing
They knew that they had to do the #QueenOfSoul right, because she would’ve been ready to tell each & every one of us about ourselves if we had her up there looking any type of way. #ArethaFranklinFuneral #ArethaHomegoing
