Aretha Franklin The Queen of Soul Is Gone

Aretha Franklin: 1956 - 2018

Another top pop star has passed away. Aretha Franklin, truly a national treasure will be greatly missed. And with much R.E.S.P.E.C.T., her fans all over the world send condolences to the family of The Queen of Soul.

Some of her more familiar songs include A Natural Woman, Spanish Harlem, Think, Chain Of Fools, I Say A Little Prayer, Freeway Of Love and Respect.

I was a fan. She was one of very few singers who could convey her lyrics with much feel to her listener.  With what little cash I had during those years, bought myself a vinyl collection of her hits (above), Aretha's Gold. It's priceless today.

Ms Franklin was another victim of pancreatic cancer.

May she Rest In Peace.
