Kids today just don't know and won't care, but she was truly a pioneer in every sense of the word, and much more the "voice of a generation" than any of the self-righteous clowns today who make that same claim... great loss. Her voice and her soul will be missed sorely by those who got to witness it.

We all should pay attention. We are losing greatness. Another voice that has left an indelible mark in this world is gone. She put a powerful voice to something so simple ,yet is the pivot in everyone's life. RESPECT. You either give it or you don't. But we all remember how we are treated, be it good or bad. Respect for others can fill a void that's missing in good old fashioned decency.

 

RIP Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.

Last few weeks I had been listening to her version of this which is honestly amazing:
 

 

I've also always liked this clip:
 


Their interaction is really silly but it's awesome how Aretha tears it up.

RIP, possibly the greatest female voice ever really

God damn :( 

This passing just reminds me of greater passing's within our culture and society...

 

How did we fall so far, so fast?

How did we go from this level of grace and humility and class to where we are in 2018 so quickly?

 

 

That performance (and that funny looking black president) were less than 3 years ago!

Boy how times flies when you let a bunch of racists into the government. Sorry off topic / on topic / off topic lol...

Princess? I'd say a peon, compared to the Queen of Soul.
