I first heard this track when it was included Cat Power's second album of cover versions, Jukebox. IT was one of two songs that really stood out for me, the other being Song To Bobby. So I had to find out who did the originals and after a quick search on the internet search I discovered that the original of Aretha, Sing One For Me was by George Jackson and released on the Memphis label Hi in 1972.
