This woman, her voice, her fierceness, her power will be truly missed. This is probably in my top 10 favourite songs ever created. It’s made me weep with sadness & joy many times in my life & will continue to do so until i the day i leave this place. Much love & gratitude for your special talent Queen Aretha. ??

“Just to know I uplifted another person – I wouldn’t be doing anything else. In terms of helping people understand and know each other a little better, music is universal – universal and transporting.”
