Farewell to Detroit’s Greatest Musical Legend

Farewell to Detroit’s Greatest Musical Legend

Tuesday, 21 August 2018
Detroit Music Station

Words cannot possibly describe the void left in the Detroit music community with the passing of Aretha Frankin on Aug 16, 2018. To Detroit she was not only the Queen of Soul – she was the Empress of all music. The most notable and influential talent this town has ever been able to brag about – and that includes everyone from Stevie Wonder, Bob Seger, Jackie Wilson, John Lee Hooker, Madonna and Eminem.

No, there has never been, nor will there ever quite be, another Aretha. And we realize that there is nothing we can say that has not already been said about this legend of legends, but we simply want to share one of our favorite videos of her performing on the Cliff Richardson Show in 1970. Enjoy – and R.I.P. Ms. Franklin.
