Aretha Franklin Inaugural

While everyone is talking about Aretha's hat, I was more interested in Aretha Franklin singing in the cold.

Aretha Franklin is rather famous for demanding that air conditioning be turned off when she performs because she feels it adversely affects her voice. Well,

It seems to have been rather cold outside when Aretha Franklin sang at the Inaugural and, I did sense that Aretha's voice wasn't exactly all that it could have been.

I went to see Aretha Franklin perform back in the 70's and I don't recall the air conditioning being turned off. Of course, this was in CHICAGO and it definitely wasn't in the summer, because I was in school. So, it is more likely that there was heating on rather than air conditioning
