President and Artistic Director, Vince Paul states in the invitation:
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to create such a fitting tribute to Miss Franklin. We honor her wish to establish a downtown venue that would carry on her legacy, and will continue to bring audiences into the incredible world of music that she created, in particular opening musical worlds to each generation that comes along. Her many performances here, including her final full concert performed free of charge for fans at the Inaugural 2017 Detroit Music Weekend, make this the perfect spot for the city to celebrate her gifts.”
