Aretha Franklin Looking to Open Detroit Entertainment Complex to Further City’s Renewal

The Queen of Soul told WWJ-AM she wants to open an entertainment venue in Detroit that would include a nightclub and fine dining.

It would also include “a five-star night club for dining and dancing, the band, the whole nine yards,” as well as a museum, she added.

Franklin said in Thursday’s interview she’s “glad that Detroit came through the bankruptcy with flying colors.” She says she loves how Detroit is enjoying a renaissance and that she’s “going to be part of that renaissance.”

Downtown Detroit has been a hotbed of redevelopment since the city emerged from Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection in December.

Franklin says she’s found a potential location downtown, with details to be announced later.

She performs Saturday at Detroit’s Chene Park.
