Fans pay tribute to "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin

The Queen Of Soul Aretha Franklin Has Passed Away At 76

Stevie Wonder choked back tears during an interview in which he revealed his last words to Aretha Franklin ´╗┐before she died.

"Never Loved A Man also featured "(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman" and "Baby I Love You", while the following year's Lady Soul and Aretha Now included other iconic songs like "Chain Of Fools" and "Think". "The world is poorer for her not being here", he said. Aretha has run her race with distinction and touched many lives.

The BBC has announced it will air a new profile on the singer called Aretha Franklin: Respect on BBC One at 9.30pm on Saturday, which will include contributions from Sir Tom Jones and Beverley Knight. She was the true Queen of Soul.

"Her breathing was such a defiance of what was attacking her, that you got the sense Aretha was fighting all the way". We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family, ' a statement from her family read. Author Michael Eric Dyson, who knew Franklin for 15 years and wrote an op-ed in The New York Times titled "The Church of Aretha Franklin", notes that Franklin had the "voice of a century".

Donald Trump says will attend November WWI parade in Paris
The United States has not held a major military parade in Washington since 1991 to mark the end of Operation Desert Storm. The Pentagon encouraged the use of wheeled vehicles only, and no tanks to "minimize damage to local infrastructure".

Turman recalled some of the good memories with his former wife that he remained close with until her death on Thursday, but also said she was known to be stubborn.

"She made millions feel like natural women, and she earned our everlasting Respect with each performance".

Funeral and memorial arrangements for Aretha Franklin are expected to be released in the next few days. She was not the inventor of R&B, but her roots in gospel, and her particular blend of passion and talent cemented the genre into mainstream pop music, where it solidly remains today. The daily newspaper in Allentown, Pa., said the casino "redeems itself" with the much-anticipated appearance of "the once and future Queen of Soul" following a disappointing debut by singer Latoya Jackson the previous season.

It is one of Franklin's signature songs, and is considered the song that introduced her to the world. It featured a close-up image of Franklin and a still photo of LaBelle singing in the background.
