Beth welcome on the show. Thanks Josh. Great to see you great to be here. And our other guests is Jasmine crow who is the CEO and founder of Gooder, which is a company that I am fascinated by I. think it's one of the more insightful companies that I've come across. Recently I also have a lot of questions for you Jasmin about how the idea came to you, but but welcome on the show. Thanks so much gas and happy to be here. Of course, we've got Freddie caressed my co host. Zeroed IPO your morning Josh, how you doing good I bet and Jasmine, nice to see you. Thanks for joining us today I'm super excited about today. Yeah me too good to see you. Well, let's dive right in because we have a lot to talk about Jasmine I wanNA start with you and I want to understand I want our audience to understand where you're coming from. When you started gooder there's some kind of basic facts that I want our audience to understand domestically we are wasting seventy-two billion pounds of food every year while forty two million people are struggling with food insecurity absolutely that's a foundational mess. And it's even worse. Now, I'll of everything that's happening with current virus who are wasting more food and more people are going hungry. So it is a huge issue. Yeah. I mean just to be clear before this even. I read somewhere that we were wasting about a quarter trillion dollars a year on food in the United States if people number eight is that right? Yeah. Right Frederick in. So I guess to put an even more simpler context about two percent of GDP is on wasted food for that's a lot of money spent on food that never gets eaten in this country does Like many people I have some passing familiarity with this I. Read about it I don't even know where to start and it seems like maybe you go out and you you know you try to donate food as best you can and and I think that's maybe where you started. Yeah and it transformed into something quite extraordinary. So yeah if you know Josh I started feeding people that were experiencing hunger and homelessness in two thousand thirteen out of my apartment in Atlanta Georgia So that's where got started I found a parking. Lot I drove past it one day and I just saw hundreds of people that were homeless in in something kind of just pulled on my heartstrings at that moment and I said I wanNA help you know what do I didn't have a ton of money and I knew I could cook and so I just went home I post it on facebook I mean Sunday. I'm going to go downtown and I'm going to feed on the streets. If. You want to join me I had about twenty volunteers I made a spaghetti dinner. And loved it. You know brought out my little beats pill at the time, which wasn't that loud outside. Dating us, you're dating we know exactly when you're store your. Heckling when it happened so I really wasn't that loud music thing. But I have bad and you know the idea was it would be old school kind of Sunday music why Jackson five and Aretha Franklin James Brown like this classic kind of music and a good Sunday dinner, and that's how it all got started in. So of eighty own from one of my pop up restaurants went viral on facebook and people are saying this is so amazing which restaurants donate the food and the reality was nobody I was couponing on price matching I always say, I'm the reason Walmart doesn't price-match anymore I definitely feel like i. gave them a run for him. And then I was cooking thing taking it downtown, serving it coming home cleaning up, and so it would take me like forty hours every week I did this and I started researching food ways and was really like upset like I can't believe this much food goes to waste in here I. Am you know putting together five dollar donations and my own money and trying to make these feeding is happening to feed five hundred people

So free will is a website that anyone can make a free state plan on, so that includes a will help care directive and a power of attorney. It's really easy process. You just go to www dot, free dot com, and you answer a series of questions very similar to when attorney might ask you in person, and our software takes those answers and populates a form a legal document that you can then print inside with witnesses and your gotten so on average it takes users about twenty minutes to get a completely free estate plan set up. Already your called free will so this is a totally one hundred percent free will. That's right. It's only possible through the support of nonprofits, so we get one hundred percent of revenue from nonprofits that WanNa make it easy for people to not only set up their estate plans, but also potentially, but you're not required to leave money for charities. Okay because I know people spend a lot of money to lawyers to get will's made. That's right and we think it should be very different access to lies a huge problem in the United States today instead, so we see that you know underrepresented communities have half the rate of will writing than majority communities, and that ends up being a huge barrier to wealth transfer from generation to generation. Some people just never get around to it, aretha. Franklin died without a will. Acting, right and princess well. Wow crazy. So, how long has the been out? It's been out for about three years, and we're actually experiencing a huge spike in demand right now since Kovic started booth, because people are actually able to or think about mortality for the first time, and having really important conversations with their family about what their hopes and dreams are if they were to pass away. How long does it take to create a will on the APP? On average less than twenty minutes. Okay what what motivated to start the at. I the big motivation. Is that you know we talked to a lot of people about their charitable giving and realized a lot of people don't have the ability to gave large amounts of money while. They're saving for their mortgage. Their kids educations things like that, but when they pass away, they might own a home and be willing to share a kind of five or ten percent of that with charity, and it turns out. This kind of charitable giving is actually the largest type of giving.

To setup protection for your pets and caretakers. If you have those to pass on your digital assets, such as your facebook or instagram account, so this isn't just something that baby boomers who had a house.

Double again I will. Note that is. Are You you're right I'm all right I can believe it's the fifteen. Well when I came up with the idea, let's just keep doing the daily podcast. Slams that we promised we would at the start of the, even though there's no tennis by watching lots of action, the past I thought it'd be easy. Turns out then we got lots of ideas about how to do it. Including interviewing everybody, we possibly could find relevant to each match, and that's what we've done again today. for Simona halep against Sloan Stevens 2018 final, and we've got down K. Hilas special guest coach to Simona Halep, and yes, it's been a long and tiring journey to get through today fifteen of these podcasts. We've enjoyed it immensely. I think it's fair to say. So let's get cracking with this one. This match has a lot to it. Doesn't it the whole saga because? Simona. Is it three Grand Slam. She already played. At the to that point and not. Finals yeah, yeah. She played the two, thousand, fourteen and final, and lost in three to Sharapova. She'd played the two thousand, seventeen, French Open final and lost in three Ostapenko, and she played the twenty eighteen Australian Open. Final just a few months before they send those to Wozniacki all three senators. She played well in all of them. She had a lead in all of them and lost all of them. And it was becoming a real. Saga actually. Can help get over the, line. 2018, you say. You want some facts about two thousand eighteen. We. Well, it's not long ago, so you can probably remember most of this Prince Harry and Meghan markle married. Thing right I hosted a semi. Gathering in the garden, did you did you was on the invitation? To, clarify with a few friends and family that I wasn't like a rabid royalist, and it was just an excuse to make some cake and sausage rolls. The I remember seeing the pictures. Wasn't invited that. We can handle it. aretha Franklin and Stephen Hawkins' both died toys. R.. US went bankrupt. Not Quite sure why that to my list, but it is. I'm not sure nothing either. Toys R. US went bankrupt and student Matt's became Grad Matt became Matt. Two thousand eighteen was a big. And formation. Toys R. US, they might. How do you feel about that? No I think it was pressed. Until Lo que, but so I was reading it. I won't saw. Phillips scattered toys R. US In writing when I was about five. States have good stories. Did you speak for? Him! I remember being very excited because it was circuit in the gopher. Time, I was at my dad. That's a long time ago yet. Longtime Gay and I think it was. Joseph in mazing technical latrine time as well right Matt, wasn't even Baby Matt at this point. He's never even heard of these people. You don't know Gordon the gopher is Dima. No. Right so. Just, minded ninety correction. You didn't mention that freedom got promoted into anti eighteen. Thank you for pointing that out. Rather than to. And it didn't last long. It's as relevant as toys R. US, thank you I so. Yes, so we have this final on our hands between SMYRNA HALEP and Sloan seems and it was one that. I was I was looking forward to. A tennis match in. It's just in its own right of these two players battling it out because I thought it could be a really good final. And, should he? I think it ended up exceeding all of those expectations and You're quite right Catherine when you talk about the number of finals, the the salmon halibut already been in, and it was similar to play as we think of that. We've already covered here in this running relived series like even lendl trying to win. A A I slam Andy Murray course. It took him a few guys. Goran Ivanisevic but Simona Halla. Yeah, she already had three. She'd had Darren K Hill by his side for awhile by this point, so let's hear from him about the journey that led to this moments. Together for about three us before she played that particular foreign against flown in two thousand and nineteen and I guess the memory of what happened in two thousand, seventeen, against Ostapenko, as well was brought in the full fun of Amazon so for her to go out and do what she did. And now they say that both of you most destinations. You can't get there unless you go to refund pain a tough road and that was kind of the journey that some had had even before I came along. She might the final. Open and lost Marie shower. Piping, a great match on six four on the third added chances in that one, and then to lose to paint code and then the Knicks Jay come back, an inbetween that of course remember the final that she applied at the open against the Yankee which was another great match, and just even getting to the final at the Australian Open was itself, so I I think that helped a lot. She learned a lot from that particular tournament, and when she got to the final at a French. Against Launch, he had a little extra confidence and belief in a self to finally get it done.

Why Do We Sing in the Shower?
"I think we can all admit that we've pulled a Paris bueller once or twice while lathered up in the shower. Everyone sometimes grabs a handy bottle of shampoo was an Improv. Microphone and busts out a tune or two. There's just something completely satisfying about singing in the shower even celebrities do it. According to People magazine after Jack Black likes to belt out led Zeppelin and Wycliffe. Sean digs a little bruce springsteen everyone's a rockstar in the bathroom whether you have a voice like aretha Franklin or couldn't carry a melody if it had a handle but have you ever wondered about this phenomenon. Some of US wouldn't see in public if someone paid us. We'll sing in the shower without embarrassment. Believe it or not there is a scientific explanation behind our soapy. Musical stylings first. Let's look at why we're relaxed enough in the shower to bust into song. I think about it. You don't sing when you're sad unless you're singing the blues. Maybe for many people shower times the only time they're alone all day. You're in a warm small safe environment. You're comfortable enough to be in the buff stress literally washes off of you when you relax your brain releases dopamine which can give your creative juices a jump start. Warm waters rushing over you and now you're relaxed and feeling good. It turns out that singing makes you feel even better singing because of the breathing that you put into. It gets more oxygen to the blood. This gives you better circulation. Which in turn improves your body and mood. And because you have to breathe a little deeper to belt out a song you get some of the same relaxation and mind clearing benefits as meditation. Another neat thing. Is that when you're singing? You can't really think about your problems. More stress relief. But the best thing about sending in the shower the acoustics. You couldn't ask for a better sound system than a bathroom because bathroom tiles. Don't absorb sound. Your Voice bounces back and forth around the room before fading away and because the shower is a small space it boosts your voice and even adds a little base making your singing sound more powerful sound bouncing also gives your vocal styling a reverse effect which makes voice hang in the air longer and evens out variations in your singing. I think of it as a primitive auto tune. It makes you sound better than you normally would. Which is a confidence boost? We don't sing in the shower simply because we have that song stuck in our heads. You know the one it turns out. We do it for many reasons. Stress Relief happiness great acoustics or maybe just because we like to hear our own voices no matter what the reason keep it up. It's good for you and if you've never tried it pick a song and put on your own private concert.

She is going to offer up some clues on how you can try that yourself so that when you're in the store and yeah that's all you can do and not try it on your face. You're going to be able to try and determine if it's actually a good foundation or not yeah and stay tuned to the end because you and I test out a whole bunch going to weigh in on those but first we're gonNA start with skin care and how to prep your skin for foundation before you get your spongier brush or anything like that so taken away Melanie. was there anything you do anything you do with skin preparation that you think is essential essential but most women at home are probably not doing. I mean not everybody can afford a official monthly but acting definitely exfoliating. You know there's a lot of good expediter at different different price point I depends what is your skin concern or. What is this can type so if you have a dry skin may be exfoliating alienating get rid of some of the dry skins and moisturizing so it's basically trying to find a routine that works for your skin type yeah and do you have a facial expression later that you really like that you find his gentle that have some pads because I don't always have the luxury to client. Oh go and wash your face with then what it because of the hair and everything so. I do have a pad at the pets from Arcona.

I've heard that you I never used a primer. No you don't in my life. Okay interesting for me. I don't I'm not I'm not familiar with primary. I don't use primer I don't okay. I I work with so many different client different results sometime. I want different finishes and I don't want to throw a primer that I'm not sure how the foundation's GonNa stick take to it. Is it going to glide is going to give me low residue so I don't use primarily. No a Charlotte Tilbury doesn't use primer either a lot of makeup artist on no. I think you're really like really for it or you're like. It's not for me is not from avenues a prayer. That's amazing. What a boot finding your rights shade. And what do you do if you are shopping in a drugstore or online for a foundation like. Is your shortcut to finding your exact rate shade. I mean I wouldn't show for the first. I'm online for nation.

Iran’s politicians urge foreign minister not to quit
"A news item out of Iran today, suggests the unusual prominence of Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif announced his resignation yesterday. And today, the Iranian stock market plunged Zarifa's. No, ordinary cabinet minister. He's a US educated diplomat who played a central role in Iran's nuclear deal with world powers in recent years is departure if it stands would be a blow to the politicians known inside Iran as reformers NPR's. Peter Kenyon is following the story either Peter is teeth. So is his resignation final. It's not. It hasn't been formally accepted by president Hassan Ruhani, so it isn't official yet. And a majority of Iran's parliament has now signed onto a letter saying, please stay on the job won't you continue being our top diplomat. One. MP notes. This isn't the first time Zarif has offered to step down. So we're still waiting for final word on his status. But so far it is being treated as a win for Ronnie and hard liners. They of course, have been strongly opposed to the pragmatic Casandra Hani and his government from the start. Well, why would Zarif have resigned? Well, he doesn't give a reason in his announcement, which was on Instagram in a later interview. He mentioned political infighting saying he wishes that could have been kept separate from foreign policy. Zarif and Hani have been constant targets are the hard liners. They remain very strong in certain parts of the Iranian government. The voters have consistently chosen Ruhani and his pragmatic brand of politics, but governing has always been difficult in Tehran. It's a very fractured factionalized process. And as for the timing their speculations Aretha was losing influence and felt bad about it. He was absent from the official pictures of Syrian leader the Charlot recent visit is the reef losing influence in part because he is. Is so closely associated with this nuclear deal with the United States among other countries and the United States under President Trump is withdrawn from it. Well, I think there's no question. The hardline pressure was ratcheted up exponentially when Donald Trump pulled out of that twenty fifteen nuclear agreement and reimpose sanctions on the Iranian economy that was Zarif crowning diplomatic achievement. It was tarnished. Remember, he also promised as did Ruhani major economic improvements to Iranians from this deal that never happened. Then the pull out, of course, made it even worse. So again, it's a win for the hardliners who have always argued that Ronnie was naive to trust America to keep this word should never have done this deal. And there's a debate in Tehran about pulling out of the agreement to well, I suppose we should remember that this is all happening in a moment. When the United States is gearing up for more intense confrontation with Iran ratcheting up sanctions and trying to put more pressure on the Iranian regime, which must raise a question inside Iran about how to respond. Well, yes, I mean as you point out the relations have been getting cooler and cooler ever since Donald Trump was elected, and if this resignation by mohammad-javad Cerise, stands the hardliners will be feeling more. Encouraged more empowered to try and undermine Ruhani's government even further and one result at then could be a more hostile confrontational approach to Washington as Ruhani seeks to shore up his right flank. I think analysts would say that suits the Trump administration. Just fine. Ruhani could try to find another pragmatist for foreign minister, not clear he can find anyone to match the reefs English skills and long experience dealing with westerners. So ties certainly seemed to be moving

Olivia Newton-John Clears Up Rumors About Her Health: ‘I’m Doing Great’
"She's a huge advocate for breast cancer research last year. She was in the news talking about how her husband gives her cannabis oil, and she's been finding amazing relief with that. Medicine breast cancer is not something to play with that's tough. But she does look great. She looks healthy. And hopefully, she can continue to fight this. That's tough. When I remember right after I was on pawn stars. There were these rumors that Trump had died and people were freaking out, and they were calling me. And I'm not that. I know of I, you know, and I, and you know, so the media and rumors could spread really bad. And that's a big problem with fake news out there. However, what bothers me just a little bit about this whole story is remember when Aretha Franklin had been allegedly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. And I love Aretha. I mean, she just she has had so much SAS and really knew how to deal with the media, and she stopped that story straight say not true. You know, I'm fine. Basically. She stopped. She she put an end to any rumors of her having pancreatic cancer. Unfortunately, she did have it. And she died. And so I get a little nervous when rumors are out there. And hearing people say not true. And then later they end up being true.

Why Do We Sing in the Shower?

Listen subscribe to our show on apple podcasts the iheartradio app or wherever you get your podcast. Just search for how to money. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff. I'm Lauren vocal bomb. And I think we can all admit that. We've pulled a Peirce bueller once or twice while lathered up in the shower, everyone, sometimes grabs a handy bottle of shampoo was an improv microphone and busts out a tune or two there's just something completely satisfying about singing in the shower. Even celebrities do it, according to people magazine after Jack black likes to belt out Led Zeppelin and Wycliffe Sean digs a little Bruce Springsteen. Everyone's a rockstar in the bathroom, whether you have a voice like Aretha Franklin or couldn't carry a melody if it had a handle, but have you ever wondered about this non some of us wouldn't sing in public? If someone paid us will sing in the shower without embarrassment. Believe it or not there is a scientific explanation behind our soapy musical stylings first. Let's look at why we're relaxed enough in the shower to bust into song. I think about it. You don't sing when you're sad unless you're singing, the blues, maybe for many people shower time is the only time they're alone all day, you're in a warm small safe in. Environment. You're comfortable enough to be in the buff stress. Literally washes off of you when you relax, your brain releases dopamine, which can give your creative juices, a jump start warm waters rushing over you. And now, you're relaxed and feeling good. It turns out that singing makes you feel even better singing because of the breeding that you put into it gets more oxygen into the blood. This gives you better circulation which in turn improves, your body and mood, and because you have to breathe a little deeper to belt out a song. You get some of the same relaxation and mind clearing benefits as meditation. Another neat thing is that when you're singing, you can't really think about your problems more stress relief. But the best thing about sending in the shower, the acoustics you couldn't ask for a better sound system than a bathroom because bathroom tiles, don't absorb sound. Your voice bounces back and forth around the room before fading away. And because the shower is a small space. It boosts your voice and even adds a little base making your singing sound more powerful. The sound bouncing also. As your vocal styling, a reverse effect, which mixer voice hang in the air longer and evens out variations in your singing, think of it as a primitive auto tune. It makes you sound better than you normally would which is a confidence boost we don't sing in the shower simply because we have that song. Stuck in our heads. You know, the one it turns out, we do it for many reasons. Stress relief happiness, great acoustics or maybe just because we like to hear our own voices. No matter what the reason keep it up. It's good for you. And if you've never tried it put the song and put on your own private concert.

"aretha" Discussed on KSFO-AM
"Shoes. He was Trump one more time. You know? That's the thing about great great singers the way, they phrased songs like, okay? For example, Aretha Franklin died recently. We love Aretha just I mean does anybody better than Aretha? Well, maybe for maybe maybe Tony. No, nobody's better than Aretha. She's the best female, he's the best male. But when it comes to phrasing. Like when there was the movie, the blues brothers and Aretha has all these songs that she sings in the blues brothers, but all of those songs were lip sync. And the problem is they take after take after take to get her lips to match the songs that she recorded because Aretha never saying the same song the same way twice. Phrasing people are such artists. And it's almost like tried to get a guitarist to do that guitar solo where the saxophone player to do the saxophone solo the same way they did it on the album. Well, they can do it pretty much the same way. But the never do it exactly the same way. And that's how it was with the reason. So I just screw Tony uptight one mortar. Let's now that I've heard it. I think I know what it's phrasings like one more time K SF. Oh, hey, hey, be L, y'all. Hey SFO fair about that. Okay, or smack you on the back while you stop. Did you choke on something? SF?

"And I think that I think that ultimately what would happen is I think that a lot of philanthropic organizations perhaps with would would would would would would offer grants and dollars that could help build that school and make it stronger. I would like to see the Detroit academy for international kademi for ya. Women be named after Retha Franklin flooded great idea, Reverend Watson, what do you think I agree with Kim Coleman. And the truth is the twentieth century, the twenty first century culture not just in Detroit, but worldwide has been greatly influenced by a wreath of Franklin are clean out of can't think of anyone who has stood taller than Aretha Franklin on on just the social, cultural musical and humanitarian arena. Yeah, we could just got about thirty seconds here left here Reverend Watson. Do you have a story about Aretha that you wanna you wanna leave us with. I think people need to know that Aretha out of her own pocket of paid for those who are homeless and those who hungry every year she paid for the funerals of entertainers who down on their luck and left no resources for the funeral see was just a larger than life, but generous and gracious and hospitable to the in. Well, Reverend JoAnn, Watson friend of Retha, Franklin and former Detroit city council member. It's been such a privilege to share this hour with you to remember a wreath, a. Thank you so very much at thank you and Ken Coleman, author and historian of African American history in Detroit. Thank you as well. What a privilege. I appreciate the focus on Detroit and you know what we're going to leave. We're gonna sign off today with freeway of love nineteen eighty five. The music video was shot in Detroit. It's a wonderful way. I think to to sign off to the motor city and to Rita Franklin as well. Funeral is being held in Detroit tomorrow celebrate the music I make. Chalker Bharti. This is on point..
"aretha" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"Team. Stamp. Franklin's funeral is scheduled for tomorrow. So we really want to ask how did growing up in Detroit and then leaving and returning to Detroit city known for so much beta American music. How did that help shape the music that Aretha Franklin made, and you know if you're detroiter or have once lived there, what are your memories of Retha Franklin and her music and how that's had an impact on Detroit? I'm joined today by Ken Coleman. He's author and historian of African American history in Detroit, and Mr. Coleman. If I may, I'd like to introduce the conversation Reverend JoAnn Watson, she also joins us from Detroit. She is a good friend of Aretha Franklin's he's a former Detroit city council member the first woman to serve as executive director of Detroit, Detroit NWC p the country's largest branch Reverend Watson, welcome to on point. Thank you very much for having me. It's a blessing to be here. How are you remembering a wreath today? Well, listening to her music, sir. Certainly at brings chills because if it's an no voice like a wreath voice, he was a woman field with a stirring a soul that touched your heart. Did evoked passion and a special insight. Those just not another voice in the universe, comparable to a wreath. A Franklin c. Chouli was are clean. She was a wonderful woman, a wonderful woman in more than a singer more than an entertainer or an actress. She was a woman who felt deeply about causes. She was as committed to human rights and civil rights as her her late father was Reverend Dr. CO Franklin, who I invited Reverend Dr Martin Luther King junior to Detroit in June nineteen, sixty three. When he I said, I have a dream was in Detroit. He was a guest of her father Reverend after-sale Franklin. At that point, senior pastor of new Bethel Baptist church, what we? So we should note that that that June nineteen sixty three Detroit walk to freedom that you're talking about that Reverend Franklin arranged was the largest such civil rights walk in the country at the time until just two months later, the March. In Washington happened. That's exactly why does it. Matter of fact, Reverend Dr CO Franklin who helped organize it? He spearheaded this movement chairing a human rights organization here in the city. He invited hundreds of small churches and black clubs and grassroots organizations to be a part of the assembly of this gigantic effort. And it was just a really one of the most critical. I believe crossroads and Detroit's history in the nation's history. And Dr Franklin also provided resources that helped Reverend Dr Martin Luther King junior pay for that March in Washington in August of nineteen sixty three. So Detroit did not just preceded and also help to fund what happened in August. Now, Ken Coleman, though in nineteen sixty three Aretha Franklin head already left Detroit right for for New York to make her her secular music career. But before that, if I understand correctly, again by virtue of her father and new Bethel Baptist church, she had an opportunity to to meet Dr king offshore, right? So tell tells a little bit about that. There's no doubt. I mean, certainly throughout the nineteen fifties in at one time, Reverend seal Franklin wasn't official with the Detroit branch was not the president or the executive secretaries as the title were at the time, but he but he headed committees there. And so they're strong relationship with the traditional civil rights movement. Certainly Dr. King helps the found the southern Christian leadership conference is and is in Detroit often and is often during those trips often at the home of the Franklin's..
"aretha" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"Aretha Franklin singing you grow closer in nineteen. Fifty six joining us now is Ken Coleman. He's author and historian of African American history in Detroit and joins us from the motor city. Ken Coleman. Welcome to on point. Thank you for having it is such a delight to have you into remember the Queen of soul. Here I wanna talk a little bit about the music hearing right now. I mean this, this church, the congregation that's responding to Rita the the fact that she was just a kid. Tell us about how important these early years were for her. Singer lead important. There's no doubt Aretha Franklin, if you certainly include that recording and that recording you pointed out was. Was recorded at new Bethel Baptist church, but historic gentlemen in our community who's not known by many, but has a great history by the name shell von battle produced records. He also pressed Reverend CO Franklin sermons, but he owned a influential record store on Hastings street are the heart of the black community heart of black business community in the nineteen forties and fifties. And so a wreath comes along at a time where the black community grows. The Franklin family moves to Detroit nineteen forty six between nineteen forty and nineteen fifty, the black community doubles and population in Detroit, and it really is sort of second wave of the great migration and so re comes along at a time when when tens of thousands of African Americans, many of whom lived in the in the south, a move to the Troy looking for better life Aretha Franklin's music help them get there. Also the communities. In Detroit churches and must have been absolutely central to the lives of all these new Detroiters. There's no doubt longstanding organizations and the revenue lots knows it. Well, the Detroit branch in AA c. p. and the Detroit urban league being founded in the nineteen teens here in Detroit. For for several decades before the Franklin's moved here in nineteen. Forty-six really were the welcoming party for for black folk who were getting off the train and and driving on long buses and automobiles moving to the city. The church churches like new Bethel Baptist church, help introduce black folk.
"aretha" Discussed on Still Processing
"You got me, but I got you. I just I mean. I think that the greatest moment, Aretha Franklin had in the internet era, and there are tons of gifts of her mid performance doing something empowering or something, you know, just her throwing her hands out rocking to the beat, the clip from the blues brothers, where she puts her hands on her hips and just wags or head. But her greatest moment during the internet era was a live performance. She gave at the Kennedy Center honors ceremony. In December of twenty fifteen. The occasion for this is Carol kings induction into the kennels center. Okay, that shows an honorary that year. She wrote you make me feel like a natural woman. One of a wreath of Franklin's greatest hits Aretha Franklin's version is the most famous. Yes, yes, absolutely. Anybody's version, including including Carole king's. And the way the Kennedy Center honors works. The honoree does not speak. The honoree is sits up in the sort of the upper level and I kind of glorified box with their fellow honorees and they're essentially saluted from the stage all the way up to the balcony level and the honorees don't know. Oh, okay. They don't know who's going to be saluting them. And typically how this worked was the president of the United States. And the first lady attend this event and they sit not too far away from the other honorees so that the performers saluting the honoree also wind up saluting the president. She gets a performance from beautiful. The Carole king musical that is still eating Broadway as we have this conversation. And then somebody says, ladies and gentlemen..
"aretha" Discussed on Still Processing
"Into much. You really can't keep up with her and the one of the great things about the musical number in the blues brothers is you've never seen a Rita move like this. Not you've never seen her do anything like this in a movie, and she's beginning to enter this eighties phase where she's just taking more chances on on being a little wilder in what she's doing with the riffs and the ad libs are singing operating in a different way. She's definitely having a lot more fun to it's like this song. I mean, again, like my main entry point the Franklin, but I just feel like her earlier music, the music that you played when we first came into this episode, it's much. It's just so much slower and much more syrupy and this is like she seems really liberated both in the movie and in the sound of this, I love it. Yeah, I love her pushing this guy around. And using the song do that. But then Aretha had another mode. Which was slow. Okay. She really knew do with the ballot. And one of the great things about her is that she really understood what to do with her voice, and it wasn't always to sing the biggest note. And she was as much an emotional storyteller as she was a belter of songs. I think that's the wrong lesson that we learned from Aretha singing was it was all about how big it was, but I really think it was like the, I think the story of of what made her particularly effective was the strategic deployment of the voices bigness and she had an advantage that almost no other singer has, which is that her voice sounds great, no matter what she's doing with. In nineteen seventy-one, Aretha Franklin goes and does this show at the Fillmore in tan Francisco. I don't know if it's still seats, thirteen hundred people or if it did back that it is basically like a medium size space. She goes, does respect does I never loved a man? The way I loved you does a handful of other songs takes a little break, comes back from the break, and the first part of the show is is really mean. She comes back from the break down at this Pano. The piano was like, I don't know what the piano was for her, but it was a really, it was a grounding instrument. It was as source of her strength as a singer, and she could control a band with the piano. And I also think that she probably used to control herself in some ways. Yeah, and I think that she could build in these spaces to do some talking. She could build in some spaces to do some runs if she wanted to. It's her the piano in the band for doctor feelgood and the song is basically very some. Listen. I'm sitting here with you girlfriend. But I think you have to go home now because my man is here. And I don't mind sitting around and talking to you. But when my man's around you have to go home, like I don't care with my mother, my brother or my sister. Ago, I feel you we all been there. I mean, Aretha basically wrote the greatest song ever written about being cock block and how it just isn't going to happen for her. But the song is unusual because there's no melody. There's no courts. So it's just a Rita just doing the blue..

"In terms of her own influence on gospel singers. This amazing grace album is the one that they listen to of hers. I would like to point out that one of the reasons why I wanted to write this book was because I felt that this album's even though it's a huge seller hugely influential on gospel. In some ways, it's been kind of underappreciated in the mainstream media. We all remember in two thousand and eight Rolling Stone magazine put Aretha Franklin on the cover as the great singer of the rock era. I agree entirely, but in the article that accompanied that cover story, this album is not mentioned once. That's a great point. And I think gossip will has been sort of ghettoized when it comes to the pop and rock spectrum. That's why I think it's so fascinating that this major pop perform a person who isn't a pop charts as often as she was during that period made this hardcore gospel album. I mean, as you said, it ended up being bestseller, but it clearly was not done for commercial reasons. No. It wasn't. However, I do not believe that Jerry Wexler of Atlantic records would do anything that was uncomfortable. There was a sort of trend towards gospel crossover success. We had happy day that single from the Hawkins. Singers, we had even some rock songs, hippie rock songs had become gospel influenced which your hand in hand one. Well, in seventy two. Yeah, we're not that far removed from Jesus Christ superstar and God's spell, right? So that applies to the staple singers and Mavis Staples. In particular, I wrote a book about them and their biggest commercial success was during this time with so-called message records that had sort of an underlying gospel field to them..

"So so she wasn't incredibly outspoken of on political causes in her interviews. I think she was letting the music speak for itself. You know, there's no yet here, thinking respect and not not hear them as anthems of female empowerment. And I think she kind of thought, what else I got to say. Yeah, I just said that, you know, you talk about her always being control. There was a fine New Yorker profile awhile back where the writer got a lot of access and she's sitting there in the dressing room with stacks and stacks of hundred dollar bills. She would not perform unless he was paid in cash. This is a store we've heard so many times Chuck Berry have to have it in cash on the barrel head or I don't play. It's it's legacy of that shit. Lund's circuit disrespect for these artists. After she leaves Atlantic, you know, I guess the third big collaborator mentor. We could say person who took advantage of her was Clive Dayton's ARIS to records, okay. An early on their, you know, the blues brothers movie happens and that's wonderful. And a new generation is introduced to her with that wise, cracking waitress and her wonderful performance in, okay, I'm less convinced about like freeway of love, you know or zoom in who weren't. You weren't a fan. I wasn't a fan, but I think you know the moment in the let's call the last third of her career that she owns at the Grammy awards in nineteen ninety eight. The notoriously people say Aretha was a diva diva was Luchino Pavarotti okay. He's supposed to perform at the Grammys at the last. Minute. I don't know. He's got a tickle in his throat. He says, no. All right. And Aretha Franklin steps in with Nessun Dorma non shell sleep is the English translation of Puccini's famous aria the mezzanine soprano that that Aretha can deliver in in in, you know, this Jonah, which is about, you know, according to most people a hundred eighty degrees from what she does. So I'm sitting at the sometimes I'm reviewing the Grammys on television on deadline. My least favorite task is daily newspaper critic. I don't know about you with lower Emmerick who would go on to be one of the publicist for the civic opera in Chicago. She knows opera, I don't know nothing right, and we both have tears in our eyes. Can't forget Nestle dorm by reap..

"I think also, you know, you make me feel like a natural woman. It's one of those string of hits in nineteen sixty seven. That's that's part of the Atlantic barrage of ten top tens. So Carole king had written is song. You know. You know a Brill building white singer. Songwriter, Jerry Wexler said there's only songs about natural men. Give me something about a natural woman. There's a really moving moment in twenty fifteen at the Kennedy Center honors where Carole king is being honored and sheep did not know Aretha would come out and sing this song, and I recalled vividly on television at the time and a went back and double check hit on YouTube red. You know, the tears in President Obama's is right, and in Carole king's is it's extrordinary you know, you make me feel like a natural woman and Aretha just delivers it proving the voice was with her well, past her prime as a recording artist. Here's that song. You make me feel like a natural woman on sound opinions. All the moaning. Used to be. So I didn't spy. Face. Just what was wrong with me..

"She was on the gospel circuit with her father. This is how it would work the Reverend sale. Franklin was the headliner and along on these on these gospel caravans that were touring through the south. You know a performers like his daughter, Aretha Franklin would be the warm-up Bax and they would cut their teeth performing for these kinds of Gatien's all across the south as a teenager. So that's where she learned how to how to sing in front of an audience, how to move a crowd, that spirit feel that they talk about in gospel music. We've got to put sale Franklin in some perspective, Greg, he was today, we have these televangelist mega church where they're superstars the preachers and he was like that for his era. He also impregnated at twelve year old Parisian and was a Philander a wreath is mom left him. And I think she had an extraordinarily difficult upbringing. Despite this fame and fortune, you know, she became a mother at age twelve. She dropped out of high school as a sophomore. She was married twice. Neither lasted very long. Both ended in divorce. There was there was a domestic abuse in. In the first marriage, she suffered from alcoholism. You know, Jerry Wexler. We'll talk about his role in the Atlantic years said, I always thought of a wreath as Our Lady of mysterious sorrows luminous is covering inexplicable pain. Her depressions could be deep as the dark. See when she turned music learning to play piano by e, right? You know, it was as catharsis. It was as transcendence, my life has problems. All of ours do this music is my scape. Yeah, there was a lot of pain poured into that music without a doubt. You can feel the anguish, inner voice, the sadness, but also the ecstasy and the celebrate Tori feel of being able to have this outlet and this gift. And she knew she had a gift. Grandmother was basically raising her at home because her father was on the raw much when Aretha wasn't on the road with him. By the time she was eighteen. She says, you know, I'm out of here leave as she went to New York with her father's blessing with the idea of forging a career in music. And at that point, I think, Jim, you know, she was pretty open despite the gospel upbringing. You know, she was a conversant with the popular music of the day. She loved it just much. She loved the gospel stuff, and it was. It was a sense of that. You know, I could do anything I want with. I shouldn't be limited, and it has been said by some of her biographers that Sam Cooke instill that in her. Well, there's debate about the Columbia years, her first major label. She signed to Columbia records. By the great John Hammond who would go on to sign Dylan. A lot of critics right off the Columbia years, and they say she is being put into a pop mold instead of finding her true self, her true voice as she did later at Atlantic. I reject that. I think her her interests in music. Her love of music were always wide ranging. She loved the tin pan alley pop. Yes, she loved the gospel. She she loved everything. And I think that that's just say she didn't have any soul, what becomes known as lady soul. You mentioned she's crowned the Queen of soul here at the real theater in Chicago in nineteen sixty seven, right? But it's there from the beginning. A lot of people just say Columbia was always steering her what to do. I don't think Retha was ever easily steered. She'd loved Dinah Washington in nineteen sixty four. She puts out an album unforgettable tribute to Dinah Washington. No record company is telling her to do that. She said, I, I heard Dinah was when I was a kid and when I loved it and you know a recurring thing, we will see throughout her career, whoever she sings, whether it's opera or Dinah, Washington or stealing Ari SPC t a song she sings becomes hers. That's why..

"Soul, Jim dead at the age of seventy six. I huge loss for for the world. One of the greatest singers of all time. It needs. Nobody needs to be told that. I mean now the numbers speak for themselves seventy seven top one hundred songs Twenty-one number one r. and b. hits eighteen Grammy awards. First female artists inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of fame in nineteen eighty seven, but it's more than just a numbers game with the wreath at the hits the great gospel critic, Anthony, but said that her role as a pivotal figure in the way women and African Americans would proceed in popular culture with so important. You know, he said that you could say you could trace the history of black America into pre and post Aretha I think that's absolutely you know, I think any critic forced to say the most significant voices in popular music in the last century. I think we could debate from the men, maybe Tony Bennett. Would go with Frank Sinatra, but there's no debate about Aretha is the voice. Yes. I mean, the influence is huge. I mean, every singer post Aretha has been influenced by her. There's no singer that you could name male and female. Really that hasn't been touched by that voice and been informed by Whitney Houston. Adele, Jennifer, Hudson Fantasia. These singers have all been hugely influenced by her. You know, it's interesting. She grew up in in the household of one of the most famous preachers in twentieth century America in Franklin, Reverend. L. a. mentors as a child. We're great gospel. Singers Mahalia Jackson Clara ward Albertina Walker. These were regular visitors to the Franklin house. The Reverend stature in in in the business long with the Reverend Martin Luther King and guys like Sam. Credible. He was she was born in Memphis, Tennessee. The family moved to Buffalo, New York and then settled in Detroit, which was basically where she spent her childhood age five. You mentioned new Bethel Baptist church. That was her her father's church. She became a performer there when she was in her teens and a star performer, they would sit Aretha down at the piano and she would belt. And by the time she was fourteen. She was already recording some timeless music. You know, she was. She was performing these classic Goss Bill hymns. There's a fountain filled with blood. There's a recording of a wreath up performing that song at each fourteen and it doesn't sound like any fourteen year old. I've ever heard now..

"I know this, but can you imagine just having that be the first song on your debut for a new record label? That is the first song on never loved a man. The way I love you Aretha Franklin's nineteen sixty seven debut for Atlantic records. Thank you so much to music inside out, host Gwen thompkins for bringing us that song and talking about it. When you listen to a recording like that, it is almost too much to wrap your head around, which is why I think so much of the writing. So much of how people talk about a Rita frames her as a miracle. But NPR music critic and powers asks us to think about refit differently. I think the reason that we tended to call resource or divine is because her human gifts were so beyond what what most of us not only possessed but could even think of possessing. I mean she was an extraordinary artists and extraordinary person. She. Had an extraordinary instrument and extrordinary mind and soul. So let's credit Aretha Franklin the way we credit someone like John Coltrane or Louis Armstrong as not only an icon, not only a divine presence, but very real musical person who deserves every accolade as an artist among those many accolades eighteen Grammy awards. Lifetime achievement award in nineteen ninety four. The presidential medal of freedom from President, George W Bush in two thousand and five. That's the nation's highest civilian award. And of course, Aretha Franklin was the first woman inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of fame in nineteen eighty seven, Lauren on key is currently the senior director of NPR music. But previously she worked at the rock and Roll Hall of fame and museum where she developed and managed the museum's education in community programmes. She was also the executive producer of the museum's annual music Masters Series. Which honored Aretha Franklin with a tribute show in two thousand and eleven, where Aretha received an honorary doctorate from case Western Reserve University. The day started when we were trying to get her to come to the museum. We had this terrific exhibit on about the history of women in rock that included some of her things, some dresses in a wonderful studio log, and she just didn't commit to coming to the museum and got a phone call from her head of security. He called me in the middle of the afternoon, and he said a recess, decided she'd like to come over to the museum. Great. This is this is what you were hoping for the museum was packed. We were running a conference. Great. What time what she like to come over? Well, we're getting in the car right now. Oh, and I was like, okay, and I said, great while there's a security entrance in the back and swish comes in and he said, well, she likes to come in the front door. I said, okay. So I went down to our security team and said, Aretha it's going to be here in two minutes and I'm not sure which door she's coming into. So which did she end up using? She came to the security entrance which gave us a minute to collect ourselves and make sure we, you know, greeted her properly in an all of that, but it was just that sense. I think of spontaneity in an occasion that was really fun and also you know, hair-raising. Right, absolutely. So tell me about who came with her, I guess, who came with her through that security entrance to walk through the hall of fame along with her, she brought family members. She had a couple of children. She had a number of grandchildren. She had a nice little onto Rosh of all family, and that was really fun because that's how people come out to museums. Right? They come with their, they come with their family. Yeah, so there there are lots of pieces of Aretha memorabilia in the museum as you mentioned, but then there's lots of other stuff to check out to was there any particular part of the hall of fame that you noticed really struck a chord with Aretha or or got her feet. Doing something. Sam Cooke was very important person in her musical in personal life in her father, Evrensel Franklin was really important minister in Detroit, and also a major recording star, and his sermons were were bestsellers..

"Let the record show that Linda was mouthing along. Now, there are several things that she adds to that song. She retools lyric to be. It's her money and she's demanding respect. It completely changes the intention of the song. Also, she and her sisters added that amazing. I contact our ESP c t find out what it means to me. That is a lot of what people think of when they think of the song that she added. Yeah, yeah, very good. What are your thoughts? Audie interpretation wise. I was thinking about what you just said about people kind of frowning on it, and I feel like that's a rock ISM in terms of criticism that idea that like only songs you, right, you're right. Self absolute formed by you are real song right? Real music, which is not at all. I think if your roots are in gospel or jazz or in legacies that are about interpretation, right? That's like not the legacy you come from. And I think that we haven't seen a singer. I would say the last. One to be honest, would be the late Whitney Houston who had the ability to interpret the way Aretha Franklin could. Right. So I will always love you like by Dolly Parton, but who knows? Because we all like Whitney Houston, like made it her own. And I think we have a long list of those for a wreath of Franklin. My choice for that is I say, a little prayer which was written by Burt back performed by Dion, Warwick Abeille sold a million strong on that. Okay. Pretty good..
