THE QUEEN OF SOUL
HONORED BY QUEEN ELIZABETH OF ENGLAND
Band of the Welsh Guards
I know this happened a while ago.
Still it’s so very important to receive such an honor and realize the reach of the “Queen of Soul.
I also needed something uplifting today.
The Queen of Soul was honored outside Queen Elizabeth’s London residence
The Band of the Welsh Guards paid tribute to Aretha Franklin outside at Buckingham Palace in London on Friday, as stars turned out to attend the legendary singer’s funeral in Detroit. They played Franklin’s hit “Respect” during the Changing of the Guard ceremony.
“The Band of the Welsh Guards are world famous for their musical versatility and professional performance and on August 16 paid tribute to another musical icon and one that has been of huge influence and inspiration to our musicians – Aretha Franklin, whose funeral was being held in Detroit 3,748 miles away, at the same time of the Queen’s Guard Change,” the British Army wrote on their YouTube page.
“In the Army Respect for others underpins all that we do, so there was only one tune that would do for today’s ceremony: the 1967 Aretha Franklin hit ‘R.E.S.P.E.C.T.’ a declaration from a strong confident woman who knows that she has everything.”
The performance was received with respectful applause from the gathered crowd.
