I’m very sad to hear about Aretha Franklin passing. She was one of the greatest and most emotional singers. I used to love listening to her in the sixties but her music is timeless. Love & Mercy to Aretha’s family and friends.

Although Aretha was known as the , i called her Hip Hop because of the Incredible break that’s in this song. You had to be quick to percussively EXTEND the break — DJs you KNOW. Aretha, Rest In Peace.

Let’s all take a moment to give thanks for the beautiful life of Aretha Franklin, the Queen of our souls, who inspired us all for many many years. She will be missed but the memory of her greatness as a musician and a fine human being will live with us forever. Love Paul

I have probably listened to "I Say A Little Prayer" more than any record. It's all great. Close to perfect. The songwriting, the playing, the production, the backing singers. But what really makes it special is that final "E-vah" about a minute from the end.
