Happy Birthday to the Queen Of Soul Ms ARETHA FRANKLIN!!!
There are very FEW artist that can withstand fickle taste, corporate shift and changing trends yet somehow remain a centerpiece of artistic validity and a cornerstone of expression. Being one of the prominent voices of the Civil Rights Movement while conquering Jazz, Classic, Blues, Funk, R&B and co author of a blueprint what is now known as Soul Music. Not to mention, she is a very underrated pianist (she should cut an instrumental album like a long time ago..). If you are going to “bow down” to anyone..(lol)..Happy Birthday to the Queen of Soul Ms ARETHA FRANKLIN!!!
