Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade-our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect. May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace.

Aretha Franklin. The Queen of Soul. The Icon. The ultimate singers’ singer. The greatest singer and musician of my lifetime. The power of your voice in music and in civil rights blew open the door for me and so many others. You were my inspiration, my mentor and my friend.

The loss of @ArethaFranklin is a blow for everybody who loves real music: Music from the heart, the soul and the Church. Her voice was unique, her piano playing underrated – she was one of my favourite pianists.

The greatest voice in American popular music has been stilled. Our beloved #ArethaFranklin has gone. For me, she was a musical lighthouse, guiding and inspiring with every note. I loved her so and love her still. Goodbye, Queen of Soul.

Remember when she stepped in last minute for Pavarotti at the Grammys and just shook us all to our core and made us question the universe by singing Nessun Dorma? #RipArethaFranklin https://t.co/Fg5tbxpl9R

En nu Aretha Franklin luisteren! Hieronder alvast vijf sublieme live performances van Aretha Franklin. Het zijn live optredens uit verschillende decennia. Het is ongelooflijk hoe lang de Queen of Soul haar goede stem hield. Iedereen herinnert zich nog hoe ze Natural Woman zong tijdens de Kennedy Center Honors in 2015, tijdens een avond die in het teken stond van Carole King. Dat optrede staat uiteraard ook in dit rijtje.

Running Out of Fools (1964)

Aretha Franklin – Running Out of Fools (1964)

A very young (and pretty!) Aretha Franklin sings “Running Out of Fools” from her 1964 album of the same name. It was quite evident that Aretha was always great! This is before she moved into a more “soulful” direction in her recordings. This is , in my opinion one of her best!

Soul Train (begin jaren 70)


Rock Steady – Aretha Franklin from album “YOUNG, GIFTED AND BLACK” in 1971

Jimmy Lee 1987

Aretha Franklin – Jimmy Lee (LIVE!) 1986

The eternally spectacular Aretha Franklin, “the mother of our collective musical culture!” She does it again here performing one of her biggest hits from the 1980’s (and personal favorite) “Jimmy Lee”. This memorable clip is from early 1987, live from beautiful Downtown Detroit…….the Great Aretha!!!

I Dreamed a Dream (1993)
