Say a little prayer for Aretha!

Let's say a little prayer for Aretha Franklin, who is has left us, but her voice will resonate through herher incredible intense interpretation of some classic soul songs.

Still my favourite appearance of her in any movie:




Here performances especially at the inauguration of Obama are legendary.
