Birthday twins: Aretha Franklin and Elton John

Happy 75th birthday to Elton John! And Aretha Franklin would've turned 80 today.

Here's my 2018 post about Aretha Franklin from 2018, when she died at 76. The post has videos, music … and Elton John's reaction: 

The loss of @ArethaFranklin is a blow for everybody who loves real music: Music from the heart, the soul and the Church. Her voice was unique, her piano playing underrated – she was one of my favourite pianists. … I adored her and worshipped her talent. … We shared the same birthday – and that meant so much to me.

Here's a Facebook post I did about a great Elton John album.
