so i just got back from a funeral ya’ll.
it lasted 9 hours,
but it was only fitting for a queen.
the queen of soul,
miss aretha franklin.
all i gotta font was…
i didn’t want to turn the tv off.
i sat there like i did with michael and whitney.
if i had the funds and the power,
i would have been there with a front row seat.
my only complaints are ariana grande and faith hill.

faith was completely off and ariana couldn’t keep up.
everyone is going on on ariana’s dress.
i don’t see the issue.
i’m also confused where were our current black celebrities??????
who broke down barriers,
passed away and most of our singers werent in attendance.
what tf was that about?
i was a little confused why obama and michelle weren’t there either.
everything else was pretty good tho.

the clark sisters.
jennifer holliday at the end.
this is what black gospel is all about.
they all made me feel it in my soul.
i cried like a baby when they wheeled the coffin out.
that part is always traumatizing.
that’s when your anxiety kicks in because you know it’s about to be over.
that’s the end of their journey here on earth.
i’m glad we have her extensive music catalog to indulge in.
i hope all the foxhole takes a moment to listen to aretha’s work.
she has music for your worst days and your best.
her music will continue to live on for generations to come.
like tyler perry said,
i’m glad i’m aliveto witness just a fraction of aretha franklin.
may she rest peacefully.
