Aretha Franklin

Been in sort of a downer mood today because of the sad news about Aretha Franklin, who reports say is near death. What a great singer, one of the greatest ever. Thank goodness her music lives on.

One of her most recent great moments.

Sorry to hear this. I agree she’s one of the greatest female singers of all time.

Reports say she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2010. That’s a very long time to fight that particular disease.

How very true.

I’m very sorry to hear this news. She was a terrific singer as well as giving a great performance in “The Blues Brothers”.

Aretha Franklin and “Respect”

The lady will be missed.

May she Rest in Peace.

So many beautiful moments have popped on YouTube since yesterday. Here’s one.

I lead my stretching exercises with a favorite, “Chain of Fools”, Thursday night as a tribute.

MSNBC is doing a live broadcast from her memorial. Some of the speeches from her family have been very nice. Smokey Robinson also spoke and sang earlier.
