Aretha Franklin: Close-Up (1968)

Recommended Posts

Author Roland S. Jefferson, MD shared this with me a few moments ago.  I have never seen this and the first few minutes look good:

 

"In 1968 ABC filmed a 30 minute documentary on musical prodigy Aretha Franklin. It is notable for the rarely seen interviews with her father, her husband, and producers. Importantly it features candid peeks behind the scenes that reveal how Aretha conceived and developed her approach to songs. And of course to watch the mesmerizing impact of her voice on the teens of the day is priceless. At your leisure, I encourage you to take the time to watch this amazing icon at the height of her youth. 

Enjoy!" --Roland S. Jefferson

WHEW!!! Goodness Gracious! I got caught up in this video for hours! LOL. 

I also clicked another video linked to this one of Aretha singing with Sammy Davis Jr. 

Unbelievable. Gosh, I wish I could sing like that.

Yeah, Google also does a good job serving up new videos to keep you engaged on their platform -- happens to me all the time, which is probably why stopped watching network TV.
