An Aretha Franklin tribute concert is set to take place this fall.
According to Showbiz411, the event will be held Nov. 14th at Madison Square Garden in New York and celebrate the Queen of Soul's six decades in the music industry. It will also reportedly feature a star-studded lineup. Although, no names have been confirmed.
