A little late, but couldn’t let the day pass without mentioning the Queen Of Soul. What a gift we have been blessed with all these years. Hearing her sing Amazing Grace and the Theme song for “A Different World” were always my two favorites. I never in a million years thought that I would have the opportunity to work with such a legend, but I did, and it was awesome in every way.
We went to Detroit because she didn’t like to fly, and as @dallasaustins and I sat there in the studio, she walked directly into the booth with a plate of food in her hand, walked up to the mic, said ... “ok honey, push record”, she sang the entire song top to bottom... ONE TAKE, and walked out of the booth with a strut of confidence that she had just killed it. There was no asking her to do anything over and quite honestly, there was no need to. Fastest recording I had ever been a part of. She was truly the GOAT. #ArethaFranklin
