RIP Aretha. Was fortunate enough to see her last August in her second to last gig ever I believe. Still had it in her!

Big RIP also 7 of her album covers are her with her head resting on her hand.

But most of what I listen to is goofballs in white makeup on a black background so who am I to judge.

I remember learning about Franklin during Black History Month in the fourth grade and that was twenty years ago. She seemed like a larger than life figure, an American icon, and that status only grew as years went by and I learned about her and her career and impact. When she performed at the Obama inauguration it became only more obvious that she was an American icon, a legend, someone who time won't forget. Even in an era with an incredible amount of female soul singers she stood out.

RIP to the Queen of Soul.

RIP. A singular talent and perhaps the greatest singer in the history of popular music. Even late into her career she had enough style and vocal ability to put even quality young talent to shame. Her presence will be sorely missed.
