Nope. She's the Queen of Soul.
Now, all that extra noise some singers do is indeed annoying (Mariah Carry types)
But Aretha Franklin? Ahhhhhhh.

In the words of the greatest band ever named for a *****:
Hey nineteen
Thats 'Retha Franklin
She don't remember
The queen of soul
Its hard times befallen
The sole survivors
She thinks I'm crazy
But I'm just growing old

Hey nineteen
No we got nothing in common
No we can't talk at all

Only BF can bring you the concept of a beater violin -- nothing worse than having to wipe down winter salt and grit from a strad.
