Gem of the Week: Aretha Franklin’s “Rolling In The Deep” Cover

1 Oct



My gem this week goes to Motown legend Aretha Franklin and her passionate cover of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep.”

The queen of soul is releasing a cover album on October 21st called, Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics. I can already tell by hearing her do Adele’s song that it’s going to be a great album.

As a fan I have always loved her voice because it’s so soulful and powerful.

I have some of her compilation albums and I love all of her well-known hits like “Respect,” “Natural Woman” and “Chain of Fools.” But my favorite has always been her version of “A Deeper Love.”

I’m looking forward to this cover album especially after I clicked the iTunes link from Franklin’s official website and read the fantastic track listing!

On iTunes you can only listen to “Rolling In The Deep”  for now but the listing shows all the songs which includes classic covers like “Midnight Train To Georgia” by Gladys Knight and “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” by The Supremes.

I also must add how flawless the soul queen looks on her new album cover and of course her voice can still bring the roof down.

Below is a link from her official site that shows her recent live performance on David Lettermen.
