TV Review: ‘Aretha! A Grammy Celebration for the Queen of Soul’

TV Review: ‘Aretha! A Grammy Celebration for the Queen of Soul’
Booking anyone at all to appear in an Aretha Franklin tribute is an act of nerve, since she was arguably the one performer in pop music history who can be said to have had no real peers as a singer, even in her day, much less ours. With that as a given, “Aretha! A Grammy Celebration for the Queen of Soul,” airing tonight on CBS, is about as good as these things get, which is a good thing, considering how flagrantly embarrassing it’d be if the show had had to settle for even the B+ list of contemporary singers. The guest list here is a grade above that.

You could make a top 10 list just of your favorite sustained high notes struck during the two-hour telecast. For myself, I’d have to top that list with whatever gritty stratosphere it is that Patti Labelle is entering at the climax of the 1970 hit “Call Me,

Barack Obama Stars in New Hamilton Song Remix: Listen to It Here
Guess who? Lin-Manuel Miranda has for the past year released a new Hamilton-themed song every month as part of a HamilDrops series.

The song also features Hamilton star Christopher Jackson as the first U.S. president, who begins to sing along with Hamilton, as well as gospel singer BeBe Winans.

Excuse Us While We Listen to Barack Obama on the
Lin-Manuel Miranda has so many talented friends, and seemingly every single one has blessed Hamilton fans by participating in his "Hamildrops" series. On Dec. 20, Miranda began reposting all the previously released "Hamildrops" on Twitter, before surprising everyone with the final drop - the remix to "One Last Time." For the final release, Miranda went straight to the top and tapped former President Barack Obama to recite George Washington's address on the aptly named "44 Remix," in honor of the 44th president. The song also features Hamilton star Christopher Jackson and gospel legend BeBe Winans.

This is a full circle moment for Miranda and Obama, who have a long history together. Miranda performed his song "Alexander Hamilton" for the Obamas at the White House in 2009, which inspired Miranda to write Hamilton. The entire cast visited the White House in 2016 to perform a selection of songs and then the following year, Miranda returned
