Daily Dose of Aretha Franklin - Precious Lord - At Age 14

Here is the one and only, legendary lady of soul, The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. This is a video I made for the audio of "Precious Lord" Parts 1 and the rare Part 2. Recorded when the young Queen was just 14 years old. It truly is an amazing display of her talent. The Part 2 "Ain't No Harm To Moan" to me is one of the most powerful parts of the song. The section of Part 1 when Aretha belts out "At the river" is also another part that will make the hairs on your arm stick up. With out a doubt this is one of my most favorite recordings, I've ever had the pleasure of hearing.
