The world has lost another legend of music. Sad to hear of the passing of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, yesterday. A true and honest soul through and through. An icon of the scene, and general pop culture as a whole in the 20th century. She was a strong woman, and bold African American, from a time when neither of those things was easy. She never left her hometown roots in Detroit, and stayed true to who she was. Through her music she gave spirit and emotion to so many generations. I hope the library she leaves behind will continue to do so for many, many more years to come. Gone from this world, may she rest in eternal peace.
