Aretha Franklin is gravely ill in a Detroit hospital.

There can’t be another Queen of Soul as far as I’m concerned.  I saw her live only once, but …. She was with Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross at the Lincoln Memorial concert preceding Bill Clinton’s 1993 inauguration. I think she wore the same fur she donned for the 2015 Kennedy honors at which this version of “Natural Woman” was recorded.
