As we all know, Elvis passed away on this date 41 years ago...

With Aretha's passing, I have no doubt that the Halls of Heaven are resounding with the King of Rock and the Queen of Soul duetting to the angels dancing. Aretha, this is a very big loss for us; there will never be another with the magnitude of your talents.

Godspeed to you. Say hello to James (Brown), Michael (Jackson), John (Lennon) and George (Harrison) for us. And Prince too!

And one of a very few universally respected (if not loved) artists. Even if you didn't particularly care for her style of music, it was hard to deny her astounding talent.

RIP to The Queen, The Godmother of soul music, Ms. Aretha Franklin. There will never be another one like her. Her music career spanned 60 years.

As for AF, my favorite of hers was Natural Woman.
Fabulous song! I'm deeply saddened. Aretha and Miles Davis were the soundtrack of my youth. My parents were HUGE fans.
