Last fall, Louisiana soul singer Marc Broussard released covers album S.O.S. 2: Save Our Soul: Soul On a Mission. The second in a series of charity albums supporting Atlanta anti-poverty nonprofit City of Refuge, the record tackled soul classics by the likes of Otis Redding and Sam Cooke in big, brassy arrangements.
One of those songs was Aretha Franklin’s “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man.” Broussard’s album take was huge and passionate, with horns and backing singers galore. But in a new video that we’re pleased to premiere below, he takes it in a different direction – with a little help from his dad.
“I probably heard this song 10,000 times throughout my life,” Broussard says. “Aretha was a favorite of my father’s, this song in particular. Honestly, the first thing that struck me about it was the piano. It’s out of tune! I wouldn’t find out why until much later.”
