Aretha Franklin is undoubtedly the Queen of Soul, a living legend, a true vocal talent. So it only made sense that she was asked her opinion of the current crop of pop girls during her interview with the Wall Street Journal. Her answers for some (Adele, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys) were positive, fair judgments. Her reaction to others, however -- not so kind.
The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin has recorded her version of Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep.' Franklin's rendition will be featured on her upcoming album of 10 cover songs, titled 'Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics.'
