Aretha Franklin

If you weren’t around in 1967 when Aretha Franklin became nationally famous, you have no idea what it was like to hear her for the first time.  There was nothing like her and her incredible voice in popular music.   Plus, she wrote and arranged many of her songs and played piano.

My sympathy to her family.  Her death is a great loss for all of us.

I saw her at Artscape in Baltimore in 1994.
