Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, passed away on Thursday at the age of 76 years old at her Detroit home, according to her publicist.

Franklin, who was under hospice care when she passed away, dropped down to 86 pounds. The singer’s family said in a statement: “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.

“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.”

    One of my friends (who has since passed away himself) used to be Aretha's touring Front Of House Sound Guy. When she sang about R-E-S-P-E-C-T, she meant it. She was a hard-nosed, but fair women.


    If she got the SMALLEST piece of feedback on her monitors, she would fire the sound engineer responsible. My friend was like only 1 of 4 sound guys her entire career she did not fire. She fired close to 500 sound guys in her career. If you worked with her as a member of her road crew, your A game just had to be on point. Anyone who could work for Aretha and not get fired was pretty much a made person in the music business and she DID launch a good number of careers.


    Rest In Power Miss Franklin.

      That was one of my favorite songs also .she also appeared on wwe wrestlemania II and Wrestlemania 23 and WWE did not mention her passing at all .they seem not to care for those who performed at there venue all they care about is business and money.

      I considered them bigot because they honored a gay guy nane Liberace who died of Aids and a few others but when it came down to her they consider her another black person.

        She was mentioned on WWE.com as soon as the news broke. Also, I think there was a mention of her passing on the Monday Night Raw following her death! Also, a bunch of superstars went to social medial to give their condolences!
