Aretha Franklin & Etta James.

I love so many genres of music, but ‘Jazz & the Blues‘ has always been my favourite. I’ve always listened to ‘Soul’, and now it’s added to my list of favourite genres.


Aretha Franklin and Etta James, who sung songs which fall in the above genres, were legends.


This is a list of my favourite songs, by both these wonderful women. I get goosebumps listening to most of them.


The reason I clubbed their songs together in a single post, is I find both their singing styles very similar.
