Oh dear, I heard it on the news today, words fail to short say anything, another great legend that is going to leave us.
They say death is "imminent."
A shame because she was the Queen of Soul. She's irreplaceable.
My fav AF song. We will never see another like her, ever.
Regarded as one of the greatest singers of all time, Aretha Franklin has died of advanced pancreatic cancer.
The great American soul singer Aretha Franklin has died at the age of 76, her representative has said. She was reported to have been gravely ill with her family at her bedside.
Known as “the queen of soul”, Franklin sold more than 75m records in her lifetime and won 18 Grammy awards. She had 77 entries in the US Billboard Hot 100 and 20 No 1 singles on the R&B chart. Her last album was A Brand New Me, released in November 2017, which paired archival vocal recordings for Atlantic Records with new orchestral arrangements by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Her last original recording was Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics in 2014, which included her take on Adele’s Rolling in the Deep.
Aretha Franklin, 'Queen of Soul', dies aged 76
This morning I read she was making a good recovery... now I read she's died.
EDIT: This was posted and the title amended before I saw Angela's thread. I've now merged the two.
I had also heard yesterday that Aretha Franklin went a little better, and now she is no longer among us she died on the same day as Elvis Presley.
Aretha, your music and memory will always remain in our hearts
This is my favorite Aretha Franklin song.
RIP Aretha Franklin
Respect for what she did for music and for women
The 'Queen of Soul' died on the anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley, who was known affectionately as 'The King'. The 16th August is not a good day for musical royalty.
Right. And let's not forget the Queen of pop turns 60 today as well!
Very sad. She'll never be duplicated. A tragic loss.
RIP Aretha, you will not be forgotten.
what a great voice she had. RIP
