Narada Michael Walden’s 22nd Annual Holiday Jam!

Presented by Throckmorton Theatre at Throckmorton Theatre, Mill Valley CA

Dec 15 2018
Narada Michael Walden’s 22nd Annual Holiday Jam!

Join us for a Queen of Soul Christmas — A Tribute to Aretha Franklin

“Aretha knew how to touch the human heart, and the psyche, and the soul of a man and a woman, and just make them feel something that maybe they hadn’t felt before.”
– Narada Michael Walden

This year’s Holiday Jam honors the spirit and career of Aretha Franklin with performances by the talented Narada Michael Walden, the Narada Michael Walden Singers, and special guests including members of Aretha Franklin’s touring band – bassist Ralphe Armstrong and pianist Nicholas Rolfe.


Narada Michael Walden began working with Aretha Franklin in the 1980s on her album, “Who’s Zoomin’ Who.” In the coming years, Narada went on to produce four albums and over 15 songs for the Queen of Soul, including her duet smash-hit, “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)” with George Michael. Narada and Aretha Franklin were working on songs for a new album at the time of her death.

The Holiday Jam is a popular, unique and joyous holiday tradition where young artists perform with Narada and other accomplished musicians and surprise guests. Narada’s passion is to mentor and inspire young musicians, singers and dancers by giving them the opportunity to perform on stage with legendary artists and work with some of the best musicians and singers in the world. This all comes together in the Holiday Jam—the year’s most anticipated, feel good, spirit lifting, love inspiring show!
