The greatest female soul voice ever steps into retirement today, Aretha Franklin. So it’s time to post your favourite divas here – soul, funky, opera – as long as there’s an outstanding voice. Tragic personal life, outrageous backstage demands optional.Please note VH1 that Shania Twain does not qualify. @gary would surely like to post some more Barbera, and I may well post some Liza later. For now there’s only one way to start off.
