How the world is remembering Aretha Franklin

How the world is remembering Aretha Franklin

The day after Aretha Franklin died in her home in Detroit, newspapers across the United States and overseas paid tribute to the Queen of Soul, whose music helped shape American culture.

The Detroit Free Press - her hometown newspaper - bid "Farewell to our Queen". "Her music gave us a greater sense of determination to never give up or give in, and to keep the faith". As a young artist, you were always an awesome voice we idolized.

Reverend Charles Turner described her passing as a "Great loss - can't nobody replace her", adding that the grief felt by mourners was akin to the loss of a parent. "For me, she was a musical lighthouse, guiding and inspiring with every note", the singer and actress tweeted. God called her home to be with his angels. "She will be missed!". R.i.p. Queen'. The Queen Of Soul & Music'.


"She (Franklin) was also one of the central artists who took a stand against apartheid and rallied for the release of political prisoners in South Africa". Tupac. Aretha, Whitney even to current say Beyoncé like that's insane.

Franklin influenced generations of female singers with unforgettable hits including "Respect" (1967), "Natural Woman" (1968) and "I Say a Little Prayer" (1968).
