a few months ago,
i was really into aretha franklin‘s music real heavy.
she has a huge music library,
but i started from the beginning.
whenever i’m down,
i listen to this album almost immediately:
“how i got over” is my favorite.
well we lost another black legend today via tmz…
Aretha Franklin, known for having one of the greatest voices in music history, and for hits like “Respect,” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” … died Thursday after a long battle with cancer.
Aretha passed away in her Detroit home where she was under hospice care. She’d been in failing health for many months and she was down to 86 pounds. One source told us he was informed more than a week ago that Aretha could go at any time.
She was surrounded by friends and family when she passed.
i’m not really sad unlike the other black legends we lost.
she had been battling cancer for years and it was definitely time.
i’m at peace that she isn’t suffering any longer.
she will always be remembered as our “queen of soul” (and shade).
may she rest in eternal peace.
she was 76.
lowkey: i hope they do her legacy justice at her tributes.
i urge the foxhole to check out her discography if they haven’t yet.
