'Queen of Soul' Aretha Franklin dies at 76

17 August 2018

While I'm heartbroken that she's gone I know she's in the Lord's arms and she's not in pain or suffering anymore from the damn cancer that took her away from us.

Fox News Channel on Thursday aired a photo of R&B singer Patti LaBelle in a tribute to the recently deceased Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.

Now, five decades later, one of King's kids is paying tribute to Franklin, who died on August 16 at the age of 76 in her Detroit home. The cause of death was advanced pancreatic cancer, her publicist confirms. "We sincerely apologize to Aretha Franklin's family and friends".

'We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on. She is also spotted in the audience when Franklin returned at the end of the special to perform "Amazing Grace". She has since appeared on the GRAMMY stage eight times, tying her with Whitney Houston for most GRAMMY performances by a female artist.

The multiple Grammy victor cemented her place in USA music history with a powerful, bell-clear voice that stretched over four octaves. The Motown Museum will be playing Aretha Franklin hits all weekend to pay tribute to her trailblazing contributions to the music world.

In 2015, President Barack Obama said: "American history wells up when Aretha sings". She got her start singing gospel music in a Detroit church where her father was the minister. I adored her and worshipped her talent.

Legendary soul singer and musician Aretha Franklin had a voice that seemed to belong to all of America. Five years later - because a diva never forgets! - she sent a fax to the AP to clarify Warwick's error.

Liz Smith, a columnist at the New York Post wrote that Aretha Franklin was "much too bosomy" to wear certain types of clothes, but that her confidence makes it work.

"Our hearts go out to her family and her countless fans". "She was obviously unwell, and I wasn't sure she could perform". "Franklin said she first met Houston when Houston was a child - and she was far too busy to be anyone's godmother", the AP reported.

In 2010, she suffered serious health problems, but continued to perform until late past year, singing last in November 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NY.

Earlier this year, music producer Clive Davis revealed that Jennifer Hudson would star in an upcoming biopic about Franklin's life. President George W. Bush awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2005.
