ARETHA FRANKLIN SINGS THE GREAT DIVA CLASSICS
The Queen Of Soul Covers Adele, Etta, Gladys, Gloria, Barbra & More On Vinyl Import LP!
Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics is the final studio album by the Queen of Soul, and was released in 2014. It features ten covers of songs made famous by female recording artists, including Etta James, Adele, Gladys Knight, Gloria Gaynor, Barbra Streisand, Alicia Keys, Chaka Khan, Dinah Washington, The Supremes and Sinead O'Connor. It was also her last studio album of entirely original recordings created prior to her death in 2018.
The Queen puts her own twist on Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" by including an interpolation of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, while her version of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" contains an interpolation of "Survivor" by Destiny's Child.
