A letter to the queen of soul.
A thank you will never be enough for one of our biggest inspirations of all time, the American singer, and songwriter Aretha Franklin. With this article, we aspire to honor her life and focus on the best moments that she lived. Are you on that boat with us? Let’s make this a happy and honorable moment.
Feel Inspired: MEET THE INSPIRATION BEHIND BRUBECK SUSPENSION LAMP
Since you were born, on March 25, 1942, you have become a spot of light and hope for this world. Being an American singer, songwriter, and pianist gave you the power to express what no other woman could back in the days.
At the age of 18, you embarked on a secular career, recording for Columbia Records but achieving only modest success. But you needed more, didn’t you? After signing to Atlantic Records in 1967, you finally achieved commercial acclaim and success with songs such as “Respect”, “Chain of Fools”, “Think”, and so many others! But let’s talk about respect!
You gave life to a song made by Otis Redding in 1665 and you made it your own. You turned the song into a declaration from a strong, confident woman, who knows that she has everything her man wants. She never does him wrong, and demands his “respect”. And that’s what you provide for us: not a ‘little’ but a lot of respect.
Thank you for being a remarkable inspiration from the mid-century modern era and from being someone we can look up to. The vintage vibe of the 60’s wouldn’t be the same without you. And we, certainly, wouldn’t be the same without your influence.
Now rest in peace, and take care of all of us from up there. May we honor your work done here and may we present you to the newborns as the major inspiration you are for us.
See you soon,
