Aretha Franklin is bringing the magic of her voice once again. At the age of 72 she is paying tribute to all her fellow divas and collaborating with Clive Davis to deliver a stunning album: Great Diva Classics. Aretha will perform her album version of Adele’s classic ‘Rolling in the Deep’ on Late Night with David Letterman.

Aretha Franklin! The great Aretha…who we all give R-E-S-P-E-C-T to for: her attitude, her soul, her magical voice and her inspirational personality. She is back once more to give us back the soulful magic of her beautiful voice that will have us humming along and even grooving like we were back in the 70’s.

Aretha has collaborated with Clive Davis to record some phenomenal tracks sung across time by her fellow divas. To sing songs that are already so sensational is a feat in itself, but when it is Aretha Franklin who is singing, we might expect great music.

Clive Davis is adamant that Aretha is at the top her vocal peak. He said that listening to her sends shivers down your spine. She is like a power house when she is singing even at the age of 72. What could a true Aretha fan want more than to hear her sing again?

Great Diva Classic’s opening track will be Etta James’ ‘At Last’. What a great way to start something promising and beautiful? The album will also features Gladys Knight's "Midnight Train to Georgia," Barbra Streisand's "People" and Whitney Houston's "I'm Every Woman."

She is also singing Kenneth’s "Babyface," Supremes' "You Keep Me Hangin' On," Alicia Keys' "No One," Dinah Washington's "Teach Me Tonight," Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" with some incorporation of Destiny's Child's "Survivor." The 10 track album closes with Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U.”

Aretha will perform her album’s version of Adele’s Grammy-winning song “Rolling in the Deep” at Late Night with David Letterman. The song will be available digitally too. Edmonds and Andre 3000 are among the album's producers. For all the Aretha Franklin fans and those who are just fans of great music this album is bound to be one of the must haves.

If you like the songs on the album and powerful vocals then you should definitely listen to it and I can guarantee that if you were not an Aretha fan before you will definitely become one after listening to this album. To sum it up, Clive Davis has said that the album is purely and simply sensational.
