Aretha was nothing short of amazing. I can't say anything anyone else isn't gonna say....and Quest is gonna eulogize her more perfectly than I could ever. So instead, here are 10 of the best musical performances of my opinion.

Even Burt Bachrach couldn't imagine this song sounding better than this. Girlfriend says to "answer my prayer", and you believe her.

#RestInPower #ArethaFranklin
Her voice was so perfect. Just....perfect.

#RestInPower #ArethaFranklin
The JOY on Carole King's face brings me to tears...But not as much as Aretha's voice. Couple that with The Obamas living their best life and Aretha taking her fur off to sang the hell outta this...No one can touch this.

#RestInPower #ArethaFranklin
The Beatles are my hands down favorite band. My favorite song changes, but not my favorite cover. Aretha takes apart this song and then builds it back together better than it was. If this doesn't move you...

#RestInPower #ArethaFranklin
In times of unbelievable despair, this song shakes me, uplifts me, and gets me back to work.

#RestInPower #ArethaFranklin
I'm not an advocate of women sitting and waiting for men to come back to them...but this song could make me change my mind on that.

#RestInPower #ArethaFranklin
Aretha sitting behind the piano is dangerous. She slays every single time.

#RestInPower #ArethaFranklin
Aretha sitting behind the piano, taking apart Simon and Garfunkle's Bridge of Trouble Waters is super duper dangerous.

#RestInPower #ArethaFranklin
There is only one performance that comes to mind that captures everything about Aretha, "powerful, sassy, classy, dramatic, perfect". And that move at the end......Classic Aretha.

#RestInPower #ArethaFranklin
There are so many more great Aretha performances, but there's only one that moved me to tears of joy and perfectly fit the occasion.

We lost a real one today.
