TEACH ME TONIGHT – LESSONS I LEARNED FROM BILLIE, NANCY & ARETHA
When Aretha Franklin passed away in 2018, local
singer Naomi Ferguson wrote an obituary of thanks
to her on social media. It began “Of all the singing
teachers I have ever had, Aretha was the best”.
With the passing of another jazz legend, Nancy Wilson,
later that year, Naomi began to reflect on what she
had learned from teachers she had never met and
how they had shaped her into the singer she is today.
In this show, Naomi pays tribute to her three biggest
inspirations, their lives, legacies and songs.
Join Naomi Ferguson with pianist Alex van den Broek
and guitarist Andy Genge for a night of jazz, blues and
soul and a look at the lives of three legends of song
Billie Holiday, Nancy Wilson & Aretha Franklin.
