R.E.S.P.E.C.T I was 16 when I became hooked on Ms. Franklin. I would listen to my Godmother @karen_do_mey snap her red finger nails and roll her neck singing #DrFeelgood. I was entranced. The soul of her voice spoke to the passion I felt for our people and the power of music to make us emotional and groove. "Oh me oh my. C'mon let your love light shine on me." The architect for a female R&B career. Best female vocalist. Four octave range. Multi-genre #soul #gospel #country #opera #blues #pop Most #grammy for a female #r&b singer everrrrrrrrrr
ReRetheQuain I love you. I love your music. #ArtistturnActivist you are a leader and believer, a champion and a steward. May your heavenly rest be the sweetest peace in our Savior's arms. Forever sanging, jamming, snapping, rocking back and forth with a good good moan while listening to you in your element of melodies. "It's been a blue holiday since you've been gone." ❤️👑💋 #ArethaFranklin on heavy rotation! "It's a funky and lowdown feeling."
