Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul, Dead at 76
Hall of Fame singer, cultural icon and civil rights activist who influenced countless vocalists succumbs to pancreatic cancer. Aretha passed away on Thursday morning, August 16 at 9:50 a.m. at her home in Detroit, MI, surrounded by family and loved ones. She inspired countless musicians and fans, and created a legacy that paved the way for a long line of strong female artists.
Dubbed the Queen of Soul in 1967, Franklin loomed over culture in several monumental ways. The daughter of a preacher man, she was born with one of pop’s most commanding and singular voices, one that could move from a sly, seductive purr to a commanding gospel roar.
My favourite song of hers is R.E.S.P.E.C.T. About men respecting woman.
R.I.P Queen of soul.
