Just yesterday, Aretha Franklin announced she will retire after recording a final album and that 2017 will be her last year in concert. As a big fan of her work, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorites from her catalogue.
Since we’re all well aware of her major hits like ‘Respect’ and ‘Natural Woman,’ I’m gonna shoot for stuff that isn’t as well known. Feel free to share your faves in the comments section.

The lady’s a pretty good pianist.
2. Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You):
3. Do Right Woman:
4. The House that Jack Built:
5. Baby I Love You:
Rarely is raw power so perfectly blended with technical mastery!
