The Queen of Soul Has Passed

Aretha Franklin passed peacefully today, reportedly surrounded by family. In her time on this planet she had 112 charted singles including 17 top ten pop singles, 100 R&B entries and 20 number-one R&B singles, 18 Grammys (when that MEANT something) and was the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

She was also, by all accounts, a remarkably good person, a fine mother and she had an uncommonly positive influence upon our culture and society.

Her loss to the world is sad indeed but her time here was in no way wasted.
