Aretha Franklin the "Queen of Soul" is proving that you are never too old to stay relevant as an artist. Aretha's new album "Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics" pretty much says it all.
You guys know I love me some divas and I am talking about real old school divas not these auto tune, art directed, pre-constructed, rehab every other month wannabe neophyte divas.
I heard Aretha Franklin's cover of Adele's "Rolling In the Deep" and instantly fell in love with the Queen of Soul all over again.
It is kind of fitting and full circle that Aretha would cover Adele since she like so many other young female singers from across the pond have obviously been influenced by seasoned divas like Aretha Franklin.
Aretha Franklin covers a range of divas on her new album including covers of "I Will Survive", "At Last" and "Nothing Compares 2 U."
If you have been living under a popular culture rock and or either tone death to the influence on popular music that Aretha has had, then you will be an instant fan once you hear Arehta cover some classic diva anthems.
