"Think" is the name of a hit single released by American R&B/soul musician Aretha Franklin in 1968, from her Aretha Now album. The song, a feminist anthem, reached No. 7 on Billboard Pop Singles Chart, becoming Franklin's seventh Top 10 hit in the United States. The song also reached No. 1 on the magazine's Black Singles Chart, becoming her sixth single to top the chart. The song was written by Franklin and Ted White.

The song was performed by four American Idol contestants: Diana DeGarmo in season 3 (2004), Katharine McPhee in season 5 (2006), LaKisha Jones in season 6 (2007), and Siobhan Magnus in season 9 (2010).

McPhee's version of the song was released as a limited single from the American Idol 5: Encores album. The song became a minor Internet hit for McPhee - it was her first song to chart in the Pop 100, where it peaked at No. 90 due to download sales.

The song was also performed by season 3's Fantasia Barrino in her first week in Hollywood.

In Season 6, LaKisha Jones performed the song in her initial audition, as did Syesha Mercado in season 7.

Australian Idol season 6 Finalist Chrislyn Hamilton also performed the song during Top 12 and received a Touchdown....
