Today is "The Queen of Soul" birthday. On the music scene we're inundated with "Pop Princesses," but there's only one Queen of R&B and that's Aretha Franklin. Aretha is an iconic "Living Legend" who can still belt out any music genre that you can choose, to include Opera if she really wanted too.
Today, I salute you Aretha Louise Franklin, thank you for inspiring us when times were hard with your melodic renditions of gospel music, thank you for showing us that R-E-S-P-E-C-T was all we needed. When ever we needed you, you were there in song to get us through our blue days and our good days in our
"Pink Cadillac's." May GOD continue to bless you with longevity and the gift of life!
