the queen of soul



'When Aretha Franklin Brought Down the House at the Kennedy Center.'

"Prayer, love, desire, joy, despair, rapture, feminism, Black Power—it is hard to think of a performer who provided a deeper, more profound reflection of her times. What's more, her gift was incomparable."

David Remick, "Aretha Franklin: A Legacy in Music." The New Yorker, 8/16/2018.
