I have a few of her albums and they still get played every now and then. Sheer quality. America has lost a little bit of its soul today:(

Tragic; I have always loved her appearance in the Blues Brothers. Just classic.

I have always held a soft spot for her even before my music tastes had matured to fully appreciate her just because we share the name of Franklin! ;)

Respect was a song that crossed boundaries. You couldn't help but respect Ms. Franklin.
