Sheglah Fogarty was treated to an Aretha Franklin song by a tribute act live on air.

After the news that one of the world's best known soul singers, Aretha Franklin, has died at the age of 76, tributes started to flood into LBC.

Phinesta Taylor, a leading tribute act who performs under the name of Frankly Aretha, spoke to Shelagh Fogarty, reflecting on her life and career.

When Shelgah asked Phinesta for her favourite Aretha song, she also asked whether she would give the listeners a "blast."

And Phinesta willingly obliged belting out part of Dr. Feelgood. - one of Aretha's blues hits from 1968.
