- Details about the visitation and funeral for The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin have been released.

The news of her death Thursday morning has been so hard for his entire family, especially his mother, Carl Ellen, who he says is Aretha's half-sister, living in Memphis. She stepped in for the opera singer at the Grammy Awards that year.

"Never Loved A Man also featured "(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman" and "Baby I Love You", while the following year's Lady Soul and Aretha Now included other iconic songs like "Chain Of Fools" and "Think".

Seeing Cooke successfully launch a secular career, Franklin was inspired to do the same, and under her father's management, she signed to Columbia records in 1960 when she was 18 years old.




"She was indeed the Queen of Soul".

The 18-time Grammy award victor cemented her place in USA music history with a powerful, bell-clear voice that stretched over four octaves. On Friday, her picture adorned front pages with headlines such as "Respect to the queen of soul". She could just blow the top off a church, you know?

In 1987, she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2005 she was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's greatest honor. She's one of the greatest of all time, one of the greatest voices. "In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade - our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect".

US President Donald Trump called the singer "terrific", saying she "brought joy to millions of lives and her extraordinary legacy will thrive and inspire many generations to come".
