Wendy Jane’s Weekend Sounds: Aretha Franklin – Think

16 Mar

Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin

A friend of mine, Rodney Davis, posted a couple of Aretha gems–I Say A Little Prayer and Do Right Woman, Do Right Man on Facebook last night, which made me think back to how when Leni was a baby, I found out by accident that she would stop crying when I played the Queen of Soul’s Think.

Leni and me, just a lil' bigger than her Think days.

Leni and me, just a lil’ bigger than her Think days.












So, of course after that, anytime she started crying, I’d pick Leni up, put on Think and dance around with her held snugly to my chest.  Immediately, she calmed, and I calmed, as we circled around our tiny New York City apartment living room, enveloped in Aretha’s joy, in the beauty of her voice; her soul.

    Hi Tammy,

    Thanks for checking in. I did pull the image from Google. It appears it was a Chicago Tribune photo. I would suggest googling Aretha Franklin and clicking on Images. I did that and found the image not too far down the page of photos. You can copy it from there. You might also be able to copy it from my page. Thanks for visiting Wendy Jane’s Soul Shake. I invite you to read more and subscribe to the blog if you are interested.

    Wendy Jane
