Farewell to the Queen of Soul

Hello:

As I watch "Farewell to the Queen of Soul" and find myself crying tears of gratitude to have shared this earth with Aretha Franklin, feeling appreciation that she was able to help so many people just by being herself.

Such is the power of music.

This celebration of Aretha's life and her "homegoing" will likely last a few hours, so if you aren't already watching, you may choose to share in this moment on BET, HLN or stream on NPR or CNN:

Wherever you are, I wish you peace, love, gratitude and work that makes your soul sing. 

ox,
Mari
