All Hail The QUEEN!!! Prayers and comfort to the Franklin Family as we say Good Bye to a TRUE LEGEND. My heart is overwhelmed because Mrs Aretha had such a great influence on My Musical Life. I grew up listening to her almost every day. Business Woman, Philanthropist, Mother….. her Achievements go on and on. I’m so glad I got a chance to tell her how much I love her. ???
With heavy hearts we say goodbye to the Queen of Soul on this side of heaven. Aretha Franklin, inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2012, passed away this morning with friends and family by her side. She has truly left a legacy like no other. [“I Say A Little Prayer” —The Cliff Richard Show, 1970] ??? #respect #arethafranklin #queenofsoul
I don’t think there’s many vocalists who have not been inspired by the queen of soul, Aretha Franklin. And to hear of her struggle today as her body fights for life , she has asked for prayer, and so pray we will. You are a great gift @arethasings .. please know that we love you and are praying for you right now .. Psalm 91 The Passion Translation (TPT) Safe and Secure 91 When you sit enthroned[a] under the shadow of Shaddai,[b] you are hidden[c] in the strength of God Most High. 2 He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great confidence.#weloveyouaretha❤️
Known universally as the #QueenofSoul, #ArethaFranklin (@arethasings) solidified her legendary status in the late 1960s with chart-topping recordings that included “Respect,” “A Natural Woman (You Make Me Feel Like),” and “Think.” During her six-decade career, she earned 44 GRAMMY nominations, 18 #GRAMMYs, and was recognized in 2008 as @MusiCares Person of the Year for her extraordinary artistic achievements and charitable efforts. She was an incomparable artist who came to be recognized as one of the most profound voices in music. ❤️?❤️
I will always remember and love Aretha Franklin. I remember @bigjimwright making me a CD of allllllll the songs that I should listen to by Aretha because no one could groove, croon, riff, belt, kill a song like Aretha. It was the Sparkle soundtrack made in 1976 to be exact. My earlier memories are of my father having Aretha’s gospel album on vinyl. Aretha is an artist that I reference all the time because of her ability to rock a church or an arena and not change who she was. I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to sing at the White House and you blew the house down there that day. You said to me “I heard you out there carrying on” and we both laughed because I wanted to take them to church that day singing When Jesus Says Yes, but school was in session because the Queen took to the stage and showed us ALL how to “carry on!” I don’t like when legends have to leave us but “When we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be!” Rest on Ms. Aretha Franklin.
