A tribute to Aretha Franklin 1942-2018

The age is 1965, a man called Redding released a song called Respect about a frustrated man who demands his wife treat him respectfully when he gets home from work. The song reached no. 33. on Billboard chart.

The age is 1967, Aretha Franklin decided to flip the coin and she sang the same song the way only she could and demanded the same respect for Afro-Americans and women. The rest is history.

She is the Voice... The Queen of the Soul... The Woman.. The Strong Woman... who empowered Afro-Americans and all the women, who was the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in 1987, opening the door for other women.

What can I say more? Aretha Franklin, you make me feel like a natural woman. Aretha Franklin R.I.P. Respect #arethafranklin #respect #queenofsoul
