MUSIC PHOTOS | Aretha Franklin at the State Fair Grandstand

The second night of the Minnesota State Fair on Friday, Aug. 22 was legendary with a rare performance by the queen of soul herself Aretha Franklin. She looked and sounded fantastic and it was the kind of performance that made you feel priviledged to have be there to experience it. 

With one original member and the show dedicated to other past members, the Four Tops was a perfect vehicle to transport the audience back to the feel and attitude of the old Motown days.
