And so we would know it was real...

Guess who was singing?

If the voice went a little bit flat,
You're Aretha! We know you're "all that!"
For your power to wow
You can still take a bow;
And, what's more, take a bow for that hat!

[OK, Mark. This one was for you]

A little prayer from the Queen of Soul

The hat was a definite wow!

I was told by a friend who is a member of a "soulful" black church, that the most powerful woman in the church can always be identified as having the biggest hat.

'Retha is nothing if not powerful!
