Aretha taking the roof off at the Kennedy Center awards only three years ago. Just incredible. What power.

And Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves. Iconic.

So sad. Another one of the greats gone.

I've been watching her performance at the Grammys in the 90s, when she was asked to replace Luciano Pavarotti and do Nessun Dorma with no time to rehearse. shock

Very sad news 😢

tootstastic Thu 16-Aug-18 17:43:52

One of the greatest voices of all time...terribly, terribly sad thanks

StealthPolarBear Thu 16-Aug-18 17:45:49

They've just talked about her on the news Nd obviously her music was playing in the background. I was shouting "shut up I want to hear this" at the news guy - I'm not even really a fan of her music grin

Much love and respect for the woman and her music. The Obamas' tribute is very good. Another one thinking they'll be raising the roof in Heaven tonight.
