Aretha Franklin is probably the most technically perfect of the all the singers that I have included. She has never really gone out of fashion. She had her training in church choirs, and she always seemed at her best to me singing songs with a bit of a Gospel influence.
This song, “I say a little prayer”, was actually Dionne Warwick's first hit. But, in my opinion, Franklin made the song her own, and hers is probably the more well-known version.
