Long live the real Queen. Queen of England ain’t got shit on Aretha Franklin, the queen of traditional soul music from us Americans, black Americans if you want to go there. Changing lives through what God gave her, a voice. Simply. Your music and impact will be felt for generations to come. Thank you, thank you. MICHECK1TWO
