Queen of Soul
Hailed as the Queen of Soul, no one can belt out a tune quite like Aretha and no one else in the modern world can wear the Diva moniker without it seeming like a VH1 fabricated tramp stamp.
She is a pioneer in music and one of the most successful female musical artists of all time. Plus, her loud and fabulous bow hat at Obama’s inauguration was, in my opinion the greatest fashion moment in political history and, yes, I am including Jackie O.
We are wishing her the best in recovery. R-e-s-p-e-c-t.
