[ # ] RIP Aretha Franklin
August 16th, 2018 under Aretha Franklin, Obits
Aretha Franklin passed away this morning at the age of 76 from pancreatic cancer in her beloved home of Detroit. Her family told WDIV, “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. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family. The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins knew no bounds.”

The statement continued: “We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world. Thank you for your compassion and prayers. We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on. As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.”

The Queen of Soul demanded our R-E-S-P-E-C-T and she got it with a voice that could tame the wildest of beasts. Because the power of her vocals made you stand up and take notice. Like a lion’s roar, she commanded an audience with it. Which is why people of all ages have adored her throughout her 60+ year career.

Today, let’s belt out her songs like Think, I Say a Little Prayer, Chain of Fools, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman and so on. Let our voices make her journey on the Freeway of Love up to heaven be so much easier. Then when she gets there George Michael will meet her at the Pearly Gates and they will sing their duet I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me).
