RIP Aretha Franklin

RIP Aretha Franklin, a soul legend in our time, you'll be having duets now with Etta James and Nina Simone.

I don't think that there is anybody out there that hasn't tapped their toe to an Aretha number at some point in their life.
Such a voice, such a presence.

I was watching some of her live performances on Youtube just to remind me of the wonderful talent of Aretha Franklin. She is a great loss to the music world (not just soul music). She has been much imitated by others but no-one could emulate her style.
