There will never be another woman like Aretha, no.

She was on the battlefield for women's rights (feminism), black rights (civil rights), equality and she did it with the soulful voice from Motown when she took Otis Redding's RESPECT and made it her own in 1967.

Celine, Mariah, Carole King, Gloria Estefan, Shania Twain. All tremendous talents, amazing vocal ranges, powerful stage presence.
All jockeying for position.

Lady Re does nothing but sing and outshine them all.

Her talent, her heart, given by God. Her faith was unshakable.

I don't see a successor.

I only recently learned that she was involved in the civil rights and women's rights movements.  I don't follow soul music, so I don't know who could be the next Queen of it... or if there ever will be another.  Elvis is still the King of Rock & Roll and Michael Jackson is still the King of Pop.  I doubt they'll ever be dethroned.  Certainly not by the talent of today like The Bieber.

No, for me, another singer would not have the same title as Aretha Dr. Karen Lewis, Broker.  Many are 'top' in Country, Pop, R & B, Rock, etc.  And I realize there is always someone new coming down that road.  Aretha, to me, is a Classic - her whole life, her Grammys, her voice, and her soul are all of what makes her a Classic.  Other singers will have different titles, but the 'original' goes to Aretha!

Aretha will be missed, never replaced.  As far as the talent, possible Toni Braxton or Alicia Keyes.  Both can bring the vocals and command a stage.
