The “Queen of Soul,” Aretha Franklin turned 75 this past weekend. Her last album, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics released in 2014 and features hits from singers Adele, Alicia Keys, and others.
Though I like Aretha’s rendition of these songs, I much prefer the ones she popularized — “Respect,” in particular.
It’s a simple thing, but it means a lot when we deal with people.
We want and expect it. We should treat others with it.
Certainly in today’s tumultuous climate, we can all use more of it.
Enjoy, and have a great week.
