This week saw the passing of a music legend who became a voice and inspiration for the civil rights era as well.
Aretha Franklin. Her voice was powerful and singular, her music reflected an unfailing confidence and strength. In other words, she was spectacular.
So this weekend’s music thread is dedicated to the one and only Aretha. Share your favorite Aretha songs, songs by other great female vocalists as well as other jazz, soul and blues songs.
Show your r-e-s-p-e-c-t to Aretha and dedicate your faves to her amazing grace and talent.
