The Queen Of Soul Aretha Franklin is reported to be in a Detroit Michigan Hospital under hospice care surrounded by close friends and family as she struggles to remain alive. This caused me to reminisce on her stellar career as the greatest Soul Singer of all time with a signature voice that could rouse emotions from anyone no matter how cold their heart may be.
The 76 year old icon has appeared frail in her recent performances last year all the while keeping her health concerns private. Her last performance was at an Elton John AIDS Foundation private gala last November of 2017. While many are saddened by this news, I encourage everyone to send positive energy to her in the form of your thoughts, memories and prayers as we should all do for her family and friends as I know that they have they weight of the world on their shoulders at this time.
