Here at The Grapevine Source, we are huge Blues Brothers fans, so we’d like to share with you what was posted on their Facebook Page. RIP, Aretha…and R-E-S-P-E-C-T.


In a land of giants, Aretha Franklin stood as one of the tallest. She had the soul of a lion, the strength of a warrior and the voice of unparalleled power and conviction.

THINK was a show-stopper that demonstrated her power as a performer. She also gave us an anthem for RESPECT and forever earned a place in our hearts.
