Michael Dorf PresentsThe music of Aretha Franklin will be spotlighted at the latest in the series of star-studded annual tribute concerts organized by New York City entrepreneur Michael Dorf. The show is scheduled for March 6, 2017, at New York’s Carnegie Hall.

The initial lineup of artists who will be saluting the Queen of Soul at the event includes Heart‘s Ann Wilson, Kenny Loggins, Todd Rundgren, ex-Labelle singer Sarah Dash, Taj Mahal and Melissa Etheridge, among others.

General admission tickets to the show, dubbed “The Music of Aretha Franklin,” are available now at the Carnegie Hall box office and CarnegieHall.org. VIP packages can be purchased by visiting MusicOf.org.

All of the proceeds from the concert will go toward various music education programs for underprivileged youths. The Aretha tribute will be the 14th annual themed charity concert Dorf has helped organize in New York City. The events have raised more than $1.3 million so far.

The past year’s “Music Of” tribute, which paid homage to the late David Bowie, was expanded to two nights due to overwhelming demand, with the first show being held at Carnegie Hall and the second taking place at Radio City Music Hall.

Among the artists who have been the subject of previous “Music Of” shows are The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Prince, Paul Simon, Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Elton John, R.E.M., The Who, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell.
