World pays tribute to Aretha Franklin

A screengrab of a You Tube video of Aretha Franklin

Center spokesperson Vince Paul says discussions about the name change had been underway with Aretha herself before she died.

"This is very personal for me, as you can probably tell", he said.

The Queen of Soul will never be forgotten. The image was created by graphic designer Milton Glaser. "It's a continuation of Aretha Franklin Way". "You can just imagine a teenager receiving this magazine in November 1968, opening it up and this explosion of color comes out". "Fantastic what she did with the song, originally done by Otis Redding", Wonder said. I was like, 'Why not?' You know? "It's an honor to have met her and we're gonna celebrate her". This website is not intended for users located within the European Economic Area. "I was like, 'Franklin?'" Prior to the show, Grande also posted a photo of her and Franklin on Instagram.

Obama said "Aretha may have passed on to a better place, but the gift of her music remains to inspire us all". "She is an inspiration for the world of music fans and musicians like me, who at times have to put on her records or watch her videos to remind myself how it's done". "I did not want her to check out without me having shared how grateful I was for her friendship, her love and her generosity", explained Gaddis. "She was elegant, graceful, and utterly uncompromising in her artistry", they said.

Bette Midler described her as "a musical lighthouse" on social media and said "the greatest voice in American popular music has been stilled" with her death.

And, by the way, though her Swift comment stole the entire show, we also have to give honorable mention to what the queen said about Nicki Minaj: "Hmmm, I'm going to pass on that one". Guesting on the program alongside Liza Minelli and Woody Allen, Franklin performs her hit "Respect".

"Do you think your songs were the anthem for the Civil Rights Movement?" he asked.

"And sometimes she helped us just forget about everything else and dance".

That night, Franklin went back to the Denver Hilton where she was staying and said that she did plan on performing and she even brought her team of 23 people all the way to Colorado to do so.
