There is not much to say other than I shed a few tears when I heard of Aretha Franklin’s passing. I didn’t know her, but my first thought was that we would never hear that Voice live ever again. It’s the same way I felt when my mother passed away. My mother also had an extraordinary singing voice, but more operatic. I remember the sadness I felt thinking I would never heard my mother sing again. I think that’s why I felt that way with Aretha as well. It’s a blessing to have so many wonderful performances by Aretha and I have decided to share 4 of my favorites. There are so many. Enjoy!!!
