Hail The Queen
Clearly, the talent was immense. I won't bore you with the usual platitudes-although, if they apply to anyone, this is the one. The real thing, the essential thing is the emotion that dripped through every vocal gasp she uttered. Not just the pain of black America, but being a women, a mother, a daughter, a person. I don't think she has a lot of equals. Maybe, Marvin or JB. Not a time for comparisons. Thank you for your service. See you soon.
