As the One and Only ‘ Queen of Soul ‘ Aretha Franklin was simply peerless. She has reigned supreme, and will always be held in the highest firmament of stars as the most exceptional vocalist, performer and recording artist the world has ever been privileged to witness. Superlatives are often used to describe astonishing singers.. but in my view, even superlatives cannot be sufficient.

Everyone who loved her will  be saying little prayers of gratitude, respect and appreciation for the musical life force that enriched our lives . Her voice will soar forever
