RIP Aretha Franklin

RIP Aretha Franklin.

Franklin was a hero of music.
Following up, I was blessed to have been given a chance to hear her perform. It was her last concert here in Atlanta four years ago, and she was 72. I was somewhat skeptical, as I'd heard that she had been sick and not able to perform well, but she tore the place down. Her band played for two hours straight and we were on our feet the entire time. She was not on stage the entire show, but for almost all of it. Her voice was still great, her energy level very high. Best pop music show I've ever seen
