Aretha, 1967

Echoing the enormous, worldwide sadness that Aretha Franklin has passed. Legend isn’t a strong enough title. She was unparalleled, unmatched and peerless. Prayers, warmest sympathy, condolences, and love to her family and loved ones. And to everyone else on earth who was touched, uplifted, moved and inspired by her voice and presence. Remembered forever. Thank you. Soul Serenade. Rest In Peace. 


  • A beautiful tribute to an amazing soul, her spirit & her music will live on for eternity. Paul, thank you for sharing this, as Today is a special day to me, because it’s the birthday of a relative that passed away in 1994.. may they be forever celebrating life even in the afterlife.. ❤️ Paul may you have a wonderful day! ???❤️♥️??

    I’m very sad to read about Aretha’s passing. She was such a talented person, worthy of the title: “The Queen of Soul”.

    Unbearably sad! It feel like… the glass painting is broken, strings of cello fell silent…. Rest In Peace, the unsurpassed Aretha Franklin – the beautiful soul of the world.
