The Queen of Soul is set to release her very first Holiday album this year, an album she says should have been released many years ago. The âRespectâ singer had put off releasing a holiday effort for many years because her managers and label felt that it wouldnât sell ! “I was told at one point that they (Christmas albums) didn’t make any money, but that’s not the point at allâ says Franklin. Franklin is out to prove them wrong as she joins Rahsaan Patterson, Al Jarreau and Sheryl Crow, who will also be hitting the Holiday music market this fall. She says, “It was just so grossly remiss that I have not had a Christmas album. It was just ridiculous.” “I’d be at home cooking and enjoying the holidays and listening to everybody but myself. I wasn’t enjoying that.” Aretha Franklinâs âThis Christmasâ hits stores October 14th
