    I guess she finally figured out Jake and Elwood were getting the band back together whether she liked it or not.



    Gotta give credit where it's due. As great as this scene was, who would've guess this woman had another 36 working years ahead of her?

    She certainly deserves to enjoy a retirement if she wants. I'm a little leery of announcement that one is retiring after the release of their next album (what's an album?), though. Sounds like a goin' out o' bidness sale.

    At her age and with a myriad of health problems, can't say it is not expected.

    What a career, and what a voice.

    American music canon is incomplete without Aretha.

    There was a time when she was the #1 dead beat on back property taxes in Detroit.
    She can croak for all I care.
