From the time I was a young child I can recall hearing " R-E-S-P-E-C-T" from a strong voice of a woman rearing back and letting loose on the microphone. I would soon discover that this woman was brilliant in that she sang various genres, played the piano, and could sing down full packed venues. I was amazed and to say the least inspired. I have always had a love for music. I grew up loving "Freeway of Love" and "Until You Come Back to Me." May the Queen of Soul Rest in Peace.
