Yesterday, I posted an advance recording of Aretha Franklin's first single - Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" - from her upcoming album. And she sounds fab!
Aretha sang the single last night on David Letterman, and also chatted about her one chance to appear on the Ed Sullivan Show but was cut from the broadcast, in part because her gown's neckline was "too low."
By the way - it's almost impossible to watch Aretha sing during her performance without noticing one of her backup singers (who I think is Cissy Houston, Whitney's mother) who looks so lethargic and unhappy to be there. Watch - you'll see.
