Just to know I uplifted another person - I wouldn't be doing anything else. In terms for helping people understand and know each other a little better, music is universal - universal and transporting. - Aretha Franklin
The queen of soul, Aretha Franklin, has passed at the age of 76 at her home in Detroit.
Her voice told a story of human history, and we could feel the pain, hope, darkness, light and well earned respect we all yearn for.
Thank you for inspiring us to always use our voices for the greater good, evolve with the times, and sing our hearts out, Aretha. We love you and your powerful, feminine soul, always and forever. <3
