Seems like Aretha Franklin has been playing in the background all of my life. I remember her records on at my Big Momma’s house when I was a little girl. Whenever I really went through anything hard, I would play her singing Bridge Over Troubled Water and allow myself to just cry.
During my drives from Ft. Meade, MD to Muskegon, MI, I would play her greatest hits album and sing at the top of my lungs.
She has a song that fits every situation and there is nobody that can sing and move me like she can.
I honor and appreciate her. May she Rest In Peace. #arethafranklin #queenofsoul
