This morning we lost a national treasure: Aretha Franklin, the undisputed queen of soul, passed away at the age of 76. While I rarely use our websites to express personal opinions, I could not ignore the opportunity to express my sorrow for this loss. Most of us can point to any number of joyful or difficult times in our lives and remember how hearing Aretha's soaring, powerful, enveloping voice made everything a little better.

The purity of her "gift" is undeniable and she will not be forgotten. Ever.

Hail to the Queen!
