I had thought of her in the YAAAS QUEEN! thread, but Cillian Murphy butted in with his beautiful face.

You're an enigma, cat_sidhe.

My prayers go out to her and her family and close friends.

One of my favorite Aretha moments:

“The gladdest moment in human life, methinks, is a departure into unknown lands.” – Sir Richard Burton

I think this is the live performance she did not so long ago, that made my boyfriend cry when he saw it on tv. If it's the wrong one, I'll post the right one further down.

I was just in a store and guess what came on over the radio???

You guessed right. It was waiting for me.

Aretha didn't make the list below as it was made earlier this year.
But it's an eye-opening video of actors we lost so far this year.
Some of these I wasn't even aware of - such as one of the younger people on the list: the kid who played Alexander on Star Trek TNG who died this year at 33.

hopefully the aretha franklin biopic movie respect will be good
