Aretha Franklin Wants To Open Nightclub
Aretha Franklin has her sights set on nightlife. Reportedly, the ‘Queen of Soul’ is planning to move back to her hometown of Detroit and open a nightclub. The 75-year-old singer currently lives in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Aretha, who announced earlier this year that she’s retiring, says of her latest venture,
I’m interested in doing a small nightclub downtown, and he (Bruce Schwartz, Detroit relocation ambassador for Bedrock Real Estate Services) and I have been talking about this for a couple of years now and I’m just letting him know I’m still interested. In my retirement plan, I’d like to have a small club here in Detroit.
She already has a name picked out.
It would be Aretha’s!
From time to time I would sing, and of course, I would have special artists come in to perform for the city that people in Detroit like — Detroit favorites.
What are your thoughts on Aretha opening a club?
