Aretha Franklin “Queen Of Soul” World Response

One of the great artists has passed away this morning, Aretha Franklin had been at her home in Detroit surrounded by family and close friends since the weekend when the news came out that she was seriously ill. Tributes of support had poured out over the week wishing her well and thanking her for all the inspiration she had provided as an artist, a woman, a celebrity, and a family member. Since her passing there has been an equal outpouring of condolences and remembrances on social media from all over.

 

From artists such as:

 

Carole King –

 

Paul McCartney –

 

Rod Stewart –

 

Those who worked with her:

 

Dr. John –

 

Barbra Streisand –

 

And those who sometimes competed musically:

 

Diana Ross –

 

Even politicians paid their respects:

 

Hillary Clinton –

 

Mayor of LA, Eric Garcetti –

 

 

It is safe to say she will always be remembered, she was and will always be the Undisputed Queen of Soul.
