I wanted to share this, first because it’s a great song by a great singer, but also because 49Metal, who shared this to YouTube, calls it "her very best performance!" I watched it, and that is no exaggeration. "I Say A Little Prayer" was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David and first released as a single by Dionne Warwick in 1967, when it climbed to #4 on the Hot 100 and #8 on the R&B chart. The next year, The Queen Of Soul, Aretha Franklin, released as a single as well. Her cover went to #1 on the Hot 100, #3 on the R&B chart, and was certified Gold by RIAA. Aretha’s vocal range and just the sheer energy she put into this performance converts it from a song to an emotional experience.
