"aretha" Discussed on Still Processing

"Black president of the united states. America's a big deal so what's wreath unaware. She can wear a fur coat. Sure but think about the camera angles. They're going to be on her face. Okay so aretha no. She needs to look good but not just good. She's looks special so in order to figure out her look. Local lore has it. She goes to her favourite milner in detroit. A gentleman named luke song who grew up helping us families have business. Detroit became very well known in the church circuit for making extravagant fasteners. And just all kinds done pats. Aretha was a client of his for many many years when she was invited to sing. She merely asked luke to help her. Come up with the look. They went there a couple of different options and they landed on. What is now known. Google auto fills it in if you type in aretha franklin hat. It knows what you mean. There's one had a lot of hats. He's more literal ads and figurative aspect. Does he really did wear. Google knows exactly what you mean and listen. I couldn't tell you how she sounded that day. Because i couldn't stop. I was in raptured by the performance of what was on her head which was essentially. It was a gray felt cap. Maybe a beret but stiffer now. This had is not just a hat okay with an enormous bow on it covered in crystals. Of course there swarovski's it's not just like bedazzled but the point is on national. Tv he just get aretha franklin and that voice and this hat and just you know. I think the hat took the show. I mean the internet went crazy for her and the hat. And i'll never forget this. This was sort of an older ear of buzzfeed of two thousand nine. Peggy wang who was the culture writer reporter. They're made transparent image of the hats. You could put it on anything. So the hat went on a bin laden on george bush went on every character from the office it was. It was on me with my twitter avatar for little while. Oh gee it's funny because you know when we think about why things take off on the internet. There's an always rhyme or reason to it or even any any logic that makes sense but the hat was just so dynamic and actually it's probably the only piece of clothing or accessory that could ever even attempt to stand next to voice like that in a performance like that. And i think that's part of why rose to prominence but it also did a really interesting thing it reintroduced aretha franklin to a generation of listeners and music fans who knew the name There's something about that. Pop cultural relevancy. That refreshed her and a lot of our minds. And it made me go back and think about her catalog behind respect. Which just you know. It's the classic song it was using sex. The city it's bridget. Jones diary. the moment hugh grant says the elevator playing respect like i only really understood her through a movie and tv context so made me go back to her archives and remember who she was and think more about her legacy but what. I will tell you though wesley. Is that the hat wasn't the end of it. How really opened the door to an entire second life. I'd say second boom for aretha franklin who was perfect in her tude in her lifestyle and just the faces she gave responses. She gave to questions about other singers. Or how she lived her life. And just just how she moved around the world the shade and the swagger shade and the swagger made her a prime candidate for internet thing for the second half of her life. I'd say yeah. What i remember is some of the things i sent whenever she performs. And you know. She's removing a piece of clothing. Yes like a multi thousand dollar for coat that she's shrugging out of and just sort of letting fall to the ground the finest mink because she's too hot dispirited car her. It's got to come out. The for co is due hot. Social media and the internet's propensity towards distilling down much personality into ten seconds or less gave us more of the visual anthology or more of the visual language to understand what aretha was telling us all those years in music. So the stank the swagger about her business of her aesthetic her style. And really i mean. The type of confidence and nonchalance that she exhibited throughout her life. It's the kind of casualness that only a famous person who is completely assured of their genius and ability to perform and deliver can offer. There's a self assuredness about her that is infectious and made for really good giftable or memorable content. Because sometimes when these things happen you know. There's a way in which people are turned into jobs the turn to punch lines or they're turned into caricatures or avatars. It can often feel really uncomfortable especially when it comes to black women and aretha was one of those few people that you could not project onto. You can only try to decipher her and great distinction. Yeah she really only gave us than we know what to do with. There's a series of images of retha which you've helped me duodena tested and understand their from like the nineties at some point because she's still very full figure she hasn't quite lost all the weight that she loses for health reasons and she's not quite entering the phase where she's less healthy and less well and look if anyone knows what she's filming or why. Please tell me. But there's a series of photos of aretha franklin with an old school vhs camcorder looking happy as a clam taping d k. What at brunch like always a brunch and. The thing is you're just like the images are never zoomed out enough. So you know what she's little she's with. I'm not even convinced there's tape in there. I think she's having. I think she's having fun and honestly i don't care what happens to the money in this state. I need these tapes. He the content from the states. Is she looking at but again. It establishes her as someone with more personality than just a singer. And it gives her more fullness than you are these stories about her. she's a diva. She likes to pay in cash. How does being on top of your money. Make you a diva the answer riddle me. This edzard with that. I don't know but it feels her out on a way that a lot of the accounts of her didn't previously she initiate a reputation for being difficult. She had a reputation for being tough which is also just slang for women who don't take any b. s. from anybody but but the camcorder snapshots just really make her seem like she's enjoying life which i think is also dissatisfied. These see because you never really know what happens to aging singers or any. You know what i mean. We never really know what happens to people after they kind of out of their craft. And it's always more often than not. There's kind of a sad story with a lot of black musicians. Who came out of that period of time the motown and stax era. They didn't fare so well which is to say. They ended up bankrupt. You know or or down on their luck. A lot of them are dead or dead. So i think there was just a level of just to have a counter narrative to that narrative brought the internet a lot of joy and some of the captions. There's one image with a caption that will always live on my heart. Which is just a retha here. In through this camcorder harris pullback and appointee. She is so happy and it's me looking at your drama like it's a wreath campbell so funny thing about those images though. Is it everything you said is totally true. And i would just say. In addition to that they also made her. he's not only human but like a member of your family yes. I can't figure out which of my aunt she is in those camcorder photos. Definitely one of them. Oh she's my future. She's my looper like that is me in the future. There's still no doubt about it. That is me. It's such a personal image of a public person having a relationship with technology that seems so cool and it's actually so uncool that actually did. It is cool if drake walked around for the next week. And a half with one of these cam god. Let's say that's all he has to do. And i think that aretha. I think the thing about aretha is not only what movie was she making but also what possessed her to pick up the camera in the first place like what did she see. Atlantic city this is her in a in a lime green jumpsuit holding. This camera hair is as big as a waterfall. And as long. Just holding this little. This little camcorder see is so happy. I mean if you just. Google aretha franklin camcorder. There is no shortage of images of her having the time of her life. You know it's funny. I'll bet you vangelis was still alive. He could tell you what i'm telling you that like i'm telling you they were of luther. And maybe whitney and i just i would love to know. There's probably some assistant whose leg it's just. It's just me getting things for aretha. The amount of of love an image like that makes you feel for a great person and the amount of images like that. There are doesn't reduce her genius in some ways. It kind of complicated. Because this is a woman who could simultaneously take a beatles song like she may not vote in some cases she could make it better or she can just make it way. More interesting And i see you got me. I got you. 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 wag her 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. Okay the occasion for this. Is carol kings induction into the cows center. Okay that's shares an honorary that year She wrote you make me feel like a natural woman. one of aretha. Franklin's greatest hits. Aretha franklin's version is the most famous 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.

So unfortunately and today we're also dealing with a grim warning about the future of cinema and you can decide for yourself whether this is overly pessimistic enough. But Patty Jenkins who sent him a lovers well know as the director of the recent wonder woman movies things movie going actually going to the cinema is facing a real threat of extinction. Now, this because her latest installment of the wonder woman franchise has been delayed three times during the coronavirus pandemic and it's worth remembering that just in the past week the delay of another big movie franchise that James Bond until next year. sparked the UK and US cinema owner cine worlds to actually just give up trying to operate during this pandemic and it's closed at cinemas temporarily. But for the foreseeable another UK chain Odeon is now only opening at weekends I what Potty Jenkins is worried about is that actually if cinemas do closed and during this periods that the process won't be reversible, she thinks we could lose. moviegoing at for movie theater going forever, and she's one of a number of big Hollywood directors harassing the US government for financial aid for cinemas in the US. Anyway. But I guess as you quite rightly pointed one of the dangers of this crisis business close even temporarily or even if they get state aid, will they actually come back because you know cinema is not as essential. As something like aviation at Cinema, the actual act of running and what they call a movie theater is not a super profitable industry.

There is on the board of Nike is also the author of this amazing book called imagine it forward, which I am really enjoying and learning a lot from and have a bunch of questions to ask Beth about the. 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

The APP free will would like to invite you to use their free online tools. co-founder Jenny Chia sprawling is here to tell us about it hi Jenny. 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.

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?

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.

"Hello and welcome to our fifteenth and final edition of Roland Garros relived Catherine feeling when I say that. Wistful. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa stop missing the past sort of like A. 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?

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.

You'll know exactly who I'm talking about. Melanie worked with her but she works with a ton of people and you were saying unfortunately I wasn't there for the interview you were saying I would have loved her because she herself has really laid back cool like French girl style style right yeah. I mean super cool great haircut designer Bill Marron Gucci everything but like just mad cool and laid back and no make like he he doesn't really wear makeup which is interesting so she's mad cool and being French.

Tell me if it was a good foundation or not and I was just my mind was blown. Wow I was fascinated by that. 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.

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

"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.

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?

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.

"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..

"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..

Aaron is is Rita posing on the cover in that incredible African US and headdresses that part of it as well. I believe it is, and I think it was a real bold statement for the Franklin to do that. When I was interviewing people from the book who are part of a wreath inner circle, I talked to the poet Nikki Giovanni who bought her clothes at the same shop as a Rita, and I sort of asked her, well, how do you feel that Aretha Franklin fit into the black aesthetic at that time? And Nikki Giovanni cut me off quickly and said, Aretha was the black aesthetic. Well, that's a heavy statement. She even wrote an essay believe when she was run nineteen justifying her move over to pop music saying, you know, this is still. Part. I'm still part and parcel of the civil rights movement. Here. We're just bringing our message into a different form. It's really incredible. Yes. When Aretha Franklin was very young in nineteen sixty one, she was nineteen. She wrote an article for the New York Amsterdam news, the African American newspaper where she says, point one microsiping over from gospel music to pop is not disrespecting the Lord in any way. And then she puts it in the context of the burgeoning civil rights movement in a really interesting way at a really young age.

"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.

"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.

"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..

"aretha" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour

"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..
