The Queen of Soul was truly the Queen of our souls.
A force of nature, Aretha Franklin was a gift from God who magically and seamlessly transcended generations and musical genres.
She did what she did best, tell the story and the struggles through music. Her soundtrack followed the journey of America, her music rang out from Jim Crow South to the steps of our nations Capital.
Aretha had the ability to lift you as no one else could.
We could use her inspirational brilliance in these dark times now more than ever.
