Aretha Franklin- Say a Little Prayer

The Internet was all abuzz in the last few days with the announcement that Aretha Franklin- who has lately been having some health problems- had died. In fact, Aretha is apparently quite alive and the news was a hoax.

The Detroit singer, who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, is "home, alive and recovering," said the source, who requested anonymity because of sensitivity about Franklin's health.


So, here's to your fast improvement and good health, Aretha.

Still it gives us a good excuse to hear the Franklin treatment of this Burt Bacharach song. This song was made famous by Dione Warwick but this version is a nice spicy kick to it that, when you hear it, breathes some life back into a song that has been Muzak-ed to death.

  1. Don't you just hate these hoaxes?

    It's distressing enough to be suffering from cancer without something like this.

    All the best to Aretha.


Always great to hear from visitors to Nomadic View. What's on your mind?
