In 2007, there was a program on BET by the name of 'An Evening of Stars: A Tribute to Aretha Franklin', and as it says i the title, it is offering a tribute to the great talent of Miss Aretha Franklin. During the show, they not only celebrated her 'Pop' hits and career, they also made note of her contributions to Gospel music. Here are several big names of Gaospel music paying tribute to the Queen of Soul. First up we have BeBe Winans singing "Mary Don't You Weep", an old spiritual from before the Civil War, and Karen Clark Sheard, Kiki Sheard, Micah Stampley and Twinkie Clark sing "Jesus Be A Fence", a song written by the great Sam Cooke, and, finally, Mary Mary singing "How I Got Over", a classic written in 1951 by Clara Ward. Enjoy this Sunday morning feature!

Hope everyone on the East coast is prepared for more snow!
