DETROIT (August 16, 2018) – Every now and then God sends us a beautiful melody. Melodies created within a song that which lingers on.
Aretha Franklin was a melody. Her song may have ended but the melody of her life will linger on. It lingers on because of her spirit, her service, and her commitment to the people of God. She was more than an entertainer. She was an edu-tainer. She educated, and she entertained. She uplifted as she inspired. She magnified as she focused.
As she has now made her transition, may we in the community of life continue to travel down the Freeway of Love, offering to each other more Respect. Let us continue to work together. We must never forget to Think and Say a Little Prayer for each other. As we do so, let us also say a big prayer for freedom, justice, and equality. In the words of Aretha Franklin let us simply Jump To It.
