  1. I got the impression (around the 50 second mark)that Carol was supposed to start the first verse and Aretha stepped on Carol’s part. After that, Carol never solos unlike all the other singers on the stage.

    I wonder if anyone else sees it that way or if I’m misinterpreting that part of the video.

    1. On the show “Pop-Up Video,” they said that Aretha originally didn’t plan to join in the song, so Carol was going to sing that bit. Aretha then had second thoughts and joined in–to Carol’s surprise. Later, Carol was gracious, saying “I wrote the song for people like Aretha to sing,” or something like that.
