Aretha Franklin.Today’s song from Clarksdale, Mississippi, the birthplace of the blues and rock n’ roll.

Sending a prayer with Aretha on this day that she leaves us, “I Say a Little Prayer”  is one of her greatest known songs.  It was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David for Dionne Warwick, and her 1967 version hit No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

A year after Warwick’s version, Aretha released it as the “B” side of “The House that Jack Built,” but it quickly became one of her biggest hits.  It reached No. 3 on the R&B charts; it was a gold record of course, and it was Aretha’s 9th consecutive Hot 100 top 10 hit in a row.  A New Music Express critics poll called No. 1 on their top singles of all time.
