Aretha Franklin lost her fight with Cancer and The World lost one of the greatest singular voices ever.
She wasn’t just a singer and songwriter..
What she sang about resonated with
And many people who didn’t belong to any of those movements..Thus
2 honorary Grammys
First female artist inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame
Segment two of this week’s Stew will be mostly music..some of her outstanding tracks including demos from the beginning.
However the last 30 minutes of the show our guest is Colin Linden.
Singer/songwriter/producer and someone with a sense of the history of popular music.
April 14 2015 he played one of his best gigs ever.
The White House at the request of Producer T-Bone Burnett.
It was a celebration of American Gospel Music.
Colin was invited to play in the band.
The artists that night were
Emmy Lou Harris
And the star of the show Aretha Franklin.
I found Colin driving in Toronto traffic and he gladly shared reflections on that night and Aretha’s place in today’s music.
