Thanks for starting this. Aretha has touched four generations of my family. My grandfather, my mother, me, and my daughter.

She put so much soul into her singing, and her pacing was genius.

So many songs with pain, but also many with love.

She is a cultural icon for her rendition of Respect, which was originally a man's song!

Think
Do Right Woman, Do Right Man
Never Loved a Man
Say a Prayer
Chain of Fools (my daughter's fave)
So many more

I understand she had a hard life. I hope she found peace. I wish her well on her journey.

A national treasure. I loved seeing her perform for the Obamas. Wow.

An Icon of the music world will be lost to us. Her legacy will live on.

From Barack Obama's Twitter Page:

Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade—our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect. May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace.
