Aretha covers Adele! Stop what you are doing and LISTEN!

I heard this yesterday and died. Then my friend Erika just messaged me to make sure I had heard it. She said she had “full face goosebumps.” She also said that “some people have coffee and cigarettes…I have coffee and Aretha.”

Erika, you are soooooo right I can hardly stand it.

I just listened to the song again and died again.

Sometimes a gal has to bust out in all caps.

There is only ONE PERSON in the universe who could touch this song and it’s Aretha.

Stop what you are doing. Just stop it. Listen to this.

Holy Bananas!!!
