@nyadrn - You're most welcome! I was happy to see it on NPR because there are songs on the list that I'm not familiar with, and also, there's quite a collection of her gospel music. Wow, did she put the heart and soul in gospel! I read a commentary somewhere that she even made secular music sound like a religious experience! No wonder she was, and always will be, The Queen of Soul. 


Her soulful music was wonderful and then of course she had others like this one of my favorites

NPR also posted this In Memoriam playlist. There's something on this playlist for everyone, including her well known hits, of which there are many, but also some lesser known songs, many covers, and many spirituals.
