With so many songs to pick from it has been hard to choose which one would be my signing off song and tribute to Aretha.
I have, however settled on a number she did with George Michael.
George Michael came to fame in a group called Wham, which he left very early to go solo. My signing off song is Michael’s third single since going solo and one that would test his ability as a Soul singer.
It is interesting that the video for the song also included shots of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. Two of the greatest Soul duos of all times.
Here is Aretha Franklin and George Michael with “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me).”
She has left us, but the volume of songs she has left behind will be hard to forget.
Until next week folks when I will bring you music that is the language of love. Take care and send a like my way on my website.
