As a frequent goer of the New Orleans Jazz Fest and possessing a sincere love of music that makes us move, Aretha all had our hearts. Thankful for the soul queen who taught us a little bit more about respect (arguably made the best shower-singing song of all time, you know you gave it a whirl with the microphone soap). Aretha Franklin was laid to rest on Friday after a week-long open casket in Detroit. At this point, hope we can all with a soft smile on our sweet faces say a little prayer for her as she enters a deep and peaceful sleep with a legacy that will live on for all of time:)
