The show opens with the 1968 classic Think, which reached #1 on the Billboard Magazine’s Hot Rhythm & Blues Singles. I Say a Little Prayer serves as one of two production numbers in the show, featuring four of the greatest hits by the legendary artist Aretha Franklin. While capturing the trademark elements unique to the more sentimental and lighter style of Aretha Franklin, the arrangement provides a soulful and reflective change of pace. The distinct sounds of one of the most iconic Aretha tunes comes next with Respect. This tune will bring down the house and give your groups some moments to shine. The show concludes with A Natural Woman, with inspiration from Aretha Franklin’s version of her hit song, this arrangement captures the soulful essence in a marching band setting with a lyrical treatment of the melody, and a tempo that works on the field. The powerful chorus sounds out, and the piece concludes with a powerful and punctuated finality.
