Millions are Aretha Franklin fans. I’ve been one since forever.
Back in the 60s, RESPECT was a favorite. Later, in the 80s, "Freeway of Love"... the “Pink Cadillac” song became a hit.
But, most of all Aretha will always be the major star in my heart because of her performance of “Nessun Dorma”, when she sang as a sub for Luciano Pavarotti, and, again for the Pope… that unforgettable performance… the one that brought a little boy to her side on stage.
Thank you, Aretha.
