America queen of soul Aretha Franklin dies at the age of 76 from pancreatic cancer, which she had been suffering with for a period.
Ex-US Presidents were also among the many who paid remarkable tribute to this great woman who held the world at her feet with her musical talent.
Aretha Franklin brought such musical richness to our lives, and her sultry voice and incredible talent will never be forgotten. She will also be, remembered for the way in which she guarded her private life, live it with respect, dignity and tenacity.
In my opinion, Aretha Franklin has now joined the many other great singers that gone before her and will be singing around the throne in God’s choir.
May her beautiful soul rest in peace, and her memory continues to live on long before her candle burns out.
