If you know DelightFULL, you know they have a piece inspired by the greatest musicians of all time!
And Aretha Franklin is no exception! Happy Monday everyone! Today, as you can see by the title, we’re celebrating Aretha Frankin’s birthday, wherever she is, today it’s her day! Because DelightFULL is always part of the music world, here you’ll see Aretha Suspension, the lighting design that represents the soul of this amazing artist!
If you know Aretha, you know today it’s her birthday and we had to celebrate it! If she was alive she would be turning 77 years old. So let’s make this for her.
Aretha Louise Franklin was an American singer, songwriter, pianist, and civil rights, activist. She’s the one that told the world to give her a ‘little respect’ and in our opinion, she deserves all the respect in the world. Franklin recorded 112 charted singles on Billboard, including 77 Hot 100 entries, 17 top-ten pop singles, 100 R&B entries, and 20 number-one R&B singles, becoming the most charted female artist in history.
And just because being number one in the music industry wasn’t enough, she was an activist for women’s rights. She provided money for civil rights groups, at times covering payroll, and performed at benefits and protests. Until her death, almost a year ago, she fought with everything she could together with several other American icons that declined to take part in performing at President Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration as a large-scale act of musical protest.
So today we celebrate all the good she has done for the world we live in, and we have to thank her for the music, and for never giving up. Happy Birthday, Queen!
