It's so sad that some great legendary black singers from the past (no racism intended) are gone: first Nina Simone, then Barry White, then James Brown, and now Aretha Franklin. That is so sad... :(

And please, keep ONLY Aretha's videoclips and live appearances, ONLY these stuff to be memorable. Nothing more!

I do not have goosebumps often, today I can't stop having goosebumps.
I do not write online comments often, today I have to.
