  1. Great rendition – what an amazing vocalist Aretha Franklin was.

    I would have loved to see her – got very close. I already had a ticket. Then all of her remaining shows were canceled on the order of her doctor. A few months later she passed!

    • I remember that- your having tickets and it being cancelled. I thought when they cancelled all the remaining shows- something was up. What a talent.
