Morning Cup of Soul - Aretha Franklin - A Brand New Me

Here is a stunning song from The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. This is from her 1972 "Young, Gifted And Black" Album. Which is also one of my favorite albums of all time. This is Aretha at her best: Killer vocals and piano playing that is out of this world.

I read a comment on youtube that said: "Count and Duke couldn't sing like her and Frank and Billie couldn't play that sweet." I couldn't argue with that. Aretha is the greatest voice and one of the most underrated pianist. Just listen to her playing that piano! Before Alicia Keys and Roberta Flack, Aretha was getting down SANGING and playing the hell out of a piano.
