I disagree. This focuses on her death which is merited it's own thread.

Her vocal range is undeniable:

Vocal Range and Profile: Aretha Franklin


Vocal Range: E2 - D6 - E6
Vocal Fach: Falcon Soprano (4 octaves)
Vocal Rating: Star

Positives: A rich, heavy and dark voice. Legendary interpretive wit, thanks to incredible knowledge of musical phrasing and vocal pedagogy. Franklin crafted incredible phrases by utilizing rhythmic variations and motifs, dynamics, articulation, vocal colors and drives to create original and brilliant phrases.

Her melismatic prowess brought the melisma into popular music, with her incredible pearl-like clarity, fluidity and agility. Great articulation and diction that allowed for scatting and color experimentation. A flawlessly balanced voice within every part of the scale.

An incredible lower register that was rich and warm, hit with a neutral larynx, and was reached with incredible ease and accuracy, shown by Franklin's ability to sing melisma in this area with startling intonation accuracy. Projecting down to G2 and robust down to C#3, this explosive lower register contributes to Franklin's fach as a Falcon soprano.

As she ascends, Franklin's vocal colors continue to blossom, showing off a slightly nasal but thunderous middle register. The belting register displays incredible freedom, resonance, elasticity and fluidity, soaring into a perfect mixed voice. This register is full and projected throughout, relying fully on breath support. Franklin's technique can attest to her ability to sustain each note in this area up to D6. This area also gains a slight, airy rasp before becoming grittier around G5, and a wide rolling vibrato.

Though her tessitura lies in the mezzo-belting range, her belting range and weight soars into that of a Spinto Soprano (also making her a Falcon).

Her head voice is seamlessly connected to the rest of her range, showing incredible control of her passagio. It's bright and full, with the rich rolling vibrato seen in the chest voice.

On the other side of the universe lives Bob Dylan, and he does much more to me with his voice...

Aretha Franklin dies at 76: Hillary Clinton, Carole King, Diana Ross and more pay tribute

The world grew dark as soul lost its Queen.

Aretha Franklin, the legendary soul singer responsible for iconic tunes like “Respect,” died Thursday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. She spent the past few days in hospice care at her Detroit home, where she was visited by the likes of Rev. Jesse Jackson, singer Stevie Wonder and Franklin’s ex-husband, actor Glynn Turman.

“In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family. The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins knew no bounds,” Franklin’s family said in a statement.

Though such “appropriate words” may not exist, many took to social media in an attempt to find them. Tributes to the singer began pouring out from celebrity and layperson alike as the world heard to the sad news.

Many praised her for breaking barriers as a woman of color climbing the ranks of the entertainment industry in the 1960s.

Dan McLaughlin@baseballcrank

RIP Aretha Franklin, who did so many things we now take for granted in music. Before 1967, there were nearly no solo female rock stars, black women sang in girl groups, and gospel and popular music were totally separate. Aretha busted barriers all at once.

President Trump tweeted, “The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, is dead. She was a great woman, with a wonderful gift from God, her voice. She will be missed!”

The outpouring continued Thursday as figures such as Hillary Clinton, musician Carole King and “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, simply tweeted about how much she meant to them.

“Mourning the loss today of @ArethaFranklin who shared her spirit and talent with the world. She deserves not only our RESPECT but also our lasting gratitude for opening our eyes, ears and hearts. Rest in eternal peace, my friend,” Clinton tweeted.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame paid tribute with a note on its website: “The first woman inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Aretha Franklin was an artist of passion, sophistication and command, whose recordings remain anthems that defined soul music. Long live the Queen.”

The Recording Academy offered similar words: “Aretha Franklin was an incomparable artist who came to be recognized as one of the most profound voices in music. . . . Her distinctive sound, unforgettable recordings, and giving spirit will continue to be celebrated worldwide. Aretha will be dearly missed, and our thoughts go out to her loved ones during this difficult time.”

Even the Merriam-Webster dictionary’s Twitter account honored the singer, by tweeting out the definition of the word “respect” along with a heart emoji.

Thoughts and prayers for the singer began pouring inearlier this week when news of her hospice care broke. They came from such names as former president Bill Clinton, whom Franklin sang for during his first inauguration in 1993.

“Like people all around the world, Hillary and I are thinking about Aretha Franklin tonight & listening to her music that has been such an important part of our lives the last 50 years. We hope you’ll lift her up by listening and sharing her songs that have meant the most to you,” Clinton tweeted.

Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crow, Chance the Rapper, Missy Elliott and more soon joined in.

We have lost the greatest singer of our time. As a songwriter, I know personally how meaningful a gifted interpreter of material can be. No one can replace her. - Billy Joel


A tribute concert to the late singer was already in the works before her passing. The event, produced by Live Nation and spearheaded by Sony Music Chief Creative Officer Clive Davis, who signed Franklin to Arista Records in 1980, is reportedly titled “Clive Davis Presents: A Tribute to Aretha Franklin,” and is scheduled to be at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Nov. 14.

Her vocal range is undeniable:

Vocal Range and Profile: Aretha Franklin


Vocal Range: E2 - D6 - E6
Vocal Fach: Falcon Soprano (4 octaves)
Vocal Rating: Star

Positives: A rich, heavy and dark voice. Legendary interpretive wit, thanks to incredible knowledge of musical phrasing and vocal pedagogy. Franklin crafted incredible phrases by utilizing rhythmic variations and motifs, dynamics, articulation, vocal colors and drives to create original and brilliant phrases.

Her melismatic prowess brought the melisma into popular music, with her incredible pearl-like clarity, fluidity and agility. Great articulation and diction that allowed for scatting and color experimentation. A flawlessly balanced voice within every part of the scale.

An incredible lower register that was rich and warm, hit with a neutral larynx, and was reached with incredible ease and accuracy, shown by Franklin's ability to sing melisma in this area with startling intonation accuracy. Projecting down to G2 and robust down to C#3, this explosive lower register contributes to Franklin's fach as a Falcon soprano.

As she ascends, Franklin's vocal colors continue to blossom, showing off a slightly nasal but thunderous middle register. The belting register displays incredible freedom, resonance, elasticity and fluidity, soaring into a perfect mixed voice. This register is full and projected throughout, relying fully on breath support. Franklin's technique can attest to her ability to sustain each note in this area up to D6. This area also gains a slight, airy rasp before becoming grittier around G5, and a wide rolling vibrato.

Though her tessitura lies in the mezzo-belting range, her belting range and weight soars into that of a Spinto Soprano (also making her a Falcon).

Her head voice is seamlessly connected to the rest of her range, showing incredible control of her passagio. It's bright and full, with the rich rolling vibrato seen in the chest voice.

Yes, but that doesn't answer the question (if it was one).

On the other side of the universe lives Bob Dylan, and he does much more to me with his voice...

I can understand that you don't like/feel her. There are some singers with a great range that I don't like, but Aretha was a powerhouse with tremendous skills. I love Dylans lyrics, but not his voice. I do like some of his songs though that he sang himself. I own his 2 CD greatest hits. I think other singers did a great job with his songs.

She was blessed with a God given gift. It just bugs me that when someone famous passes, all the tweets, posts, and tributes start, about how much they loved the person and their music, and how much they will be missed, when many have never even spoke of the person while they were alive, nor mentioned their music, it's just all so fake to me. rolleyes That's why I don't like Twitter and all the sites like them, because it's just about getting their posts seen, with everyone jumping on the bandwagon, and seeing who can post theirs the fastest, and it all comes off as so fake.

I had thought she was a tough one and would make it past this, but pancreatic cancer is ruthless...she pulled a long battle.
