God rest the Queen of Soul

Now, McCartney has remembered here: "Let's all take a moment to give thanks for the attractive life of Aretha Franklin, the Queen of our souls, who inspired us all for many many years", he said on social media.

"King's jaw dropped as Franklin, in a floor-length fur coat, sat before a piano and belted out the 1967 hit "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman", written by King and songwriting partner Gerry Goffin.

All week, tributes from fans and celebrities had been pouring in on social media. She also has a capacity to sing gospel. but she also was adept at singing jazz. By her teens she had already famous as a gospel singer, and had appeared with the Soul Stirrers (featuring Sam Cooke), and Martin Luther King Jr. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2010. May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace.

"The greatest voice in American popular music has been stilled".

The family added: "In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart". After further review of the photo and the network's explanation, though, it is evident the statement also contains incorrect information, thereby failing to explain the error adequately. "When she passed away this morning, I just got up, took a shower and walked down here in the rain". It's a thrillingly-performed scene, and one which saw Franklin re-record a longer version of her original song with new backing vocals and extra saxophone from musician Lou Marini. (One of her final studio albums, as it turned out.) The venue for our sitdown was Le Cirque, in midtown Manhattan, a stately, upscale French eatery, one of the Big Apple's finest. The following year, Rolling Stone magazine named her the greatest singer of all time.

US President Donald Trump paid tribute to Franklin on Twitter as "a great woman, with a wonderful gift from God, her voice".

Aretha Franklin had presence.

"I am deeply saddened about the passing of the Queen of Soul and my sister in song, Aretha Franklin".

Singer Barbra Streisand, 76, shared a picture on Instagram of herself with Franklin, taken six years ago.

A gifted pianist as well as singer, she was a self-taught child prodigy.

"Aretha didn't write 'Chain, ' but she might as well have". So at the height of her fame, long after she had crossed over from gospel singer to R&B sensation, Franklin went to South Central L.A. and performed over two nights at the New Temple Baptist Missionary Church before a live congregation and with the assistance of gospel star Reverend James Cleveland. The songstress was married twice, first to Theodore "Ted" White in 1961, but the marriage was reportedly abusive and they divorced by 1969.
