INSP Vendor Playlist: Sue (The Big Issue, Melbourne, Australia)

Aretha Franklin – ‘Amazing Grace’

58-year-old Sue, who sells The Big Issue Australia in Melbourne city centre, chose a well-known classic – ‘Amazing Grace’. Specifically, a rousing rendition by the late Aretha Franklin, who died in August this year. “When you face any difficulties in life, this song gives me hope,” says Sue. “It reminds me of where I’ve been, how far I have come and what lies ahead. I love the words and meaning behind the song – it shows the grace of God. It is very touching and Aretha’s voices is so beautiful.”
