Today we lost the one and only Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. The power, beauty, force, and pathos in her voice resonated with everyone who heard it. Her music has been part of the fabric of my life from the start and the world will be a different place without her.
The internet is awash with better tributes than I could ever write about Aretha: her talent, her history, her ever-enduring legacy (in fact Sir Paul summed it all up nicely).
Instead, let’s just take some time to listen that incredible, immortal voice:
Rest In Peace, Aretha. You will be missed but never forgotten.
