  • Beautiful artist, giving soul, love, life, heart and spirit to the world. Forever etched in our souls. (I wonder if she took classical piano lessons in her childhood. She could play.) God bless your eternal spirit and soul, dear Queen of Soul!

    • As Luciano was increasingly to do, he cancelled at the very last minute. So Ms. Franklin stepped in virtually without rehearsal and seemingly no music or words on a teleprompter. And she made that aria her own. Amazing!
