R-E-S-P-E-C-T she deserves....yes, I'm talking about....Miss Aretha Franklin.
So many of Aretha's songs are performed today, some you may not even realize. Who can forget "I Say A Little Prayer", "Chain of Fools", and "Natural Woman". This lady just doesn't quit. She recently had some heart surgery that caused a great weight loss and change for her. But she's back and better than ever. Aretha is also the godmother of, Whitney Houston, RIP diva.
Recently, on Sunday night's TV land awards, she was honored at the 2012 TV Land awards with the Music Icon Award. She sang a 20 minute set of songs, with some hits, classical, and gospel songs. We even got the news of an upcoming album that she is working on! So we can only hope of some great music coming from the diva and even some wonderful duets. I'll leave you with her performance of "Chain of Fools" from Sunday night. The diva has a few more wrinkles, but her soul and voice are unchanged. We'll give you the respect you deserve diva, WORK IT OUT!
