Missing Aretha Franklin - 1942 - 2018

It's a sad day the Queen of Soul has left this world for Heaven. Today is my 68th birthday and again a great performer has passed on. In 1977 Elvis Presley died and today Aretha Franklin has died. In my humble opinion there has never been another female singer like Aretha. Her father was a Pastor, she grew in church and she never left her faith in Jesus Christ. Steve Turner said “Judy Collins covered four stanzas and a repeated first stanza in four minutes and four seconds. Aretha took two stanzas and wrung every meaning out of them over a period of fourteen minutes.” –Steve Turner on the hymn Amazing Grace. One of her greatest performances is "Live at the Fillmore West" She also recorded many gospel albums like Amazing Grace - The Complete Recordings. Take some time and listen to Aretha today.
