So sorry to hear that she passed. Her impact on music was astronomical!!!
Inspirational is the best word I can use to describe her voice. It looks like that will be my music choice for my work music today.
I had to correct a friend of mine two days ago. It was making the rounds that she had died. Even on television. Made me mad. She was fighting for her life and people had already started saying she had died.
Now she can rest in peace.
Heaven just got a shot of soul. The queen is here.
She was great as both a singer (naturally) and an actress (perhaps surprisingly) in The Blues Brothers (1980). Funny, that movie was originally somewhat slagged by critics as chaotic or just semi-coherent, but it's proved to be a fantastic time capsule of performances by great blues/soul musicians when they were still near their peaks.
If it were not for her, I never would have known who King Curtis was ... Thank you Aretha for blessing us all for all of these years with your wonderful gift of song.. You will live on forever. May you Rest In Peace, but you have to do some singing for the angels first
