1. This is absolutely MY FAVORITE SONG by Aretha! It still moves me to tears! Great choice!

  2. It was Aretha’s performance of this song at the Grammy’s some years back that peaked my interest into classical music. Her performance of this song is just awesome. Her performance of this song has caused me to have a renewed sense of R.E.S.P.E.C.T. for the Queen of Soul!

    And by the way, Jessye Norman and Kathleen Battle can blow too!!

  4. I couldn’t listen at these performances earlier when I was at work. I just listened to them and was blown away. Whether the King of the Seas (Pavarotti) sings Nessun Dorma or the Queen of Soul (Aretha) sings it, it is still a fantastic song and they both kill it in their own way!
