The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin departed this mortal coil yesterday, and tributes to the legendary singer have been pouring in from all corners. However, there is reportedly one inauguration she refused to lend her voice - Trump's. "If your sister can do it, you can do it too".
Fox News posted a highlight reel of Franklin's interviews and performances but in the slide noting Franklin's years of life, 1942-2018, there was a picture of Patti LaBelle in the background. That same year, Detroit named a street after her.
A city which emptied when the automobile industry left.
The BBC has announced it will air a new profile on the singer called Aretha Franklin: Respect on BBC One at 9.30pm on Saturday, which will include contributions from Sir Tom Jones and Beverley Knight. Detroit was always home.
"We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on".
"You're here in Detroit".
The ANC is more than happy remember her for her huge contribution to inspiring those who strive to make the world a better place through her music.
Fox News has apologized after coming under fire for using an image of singer Patti LaBelle instead of the late Aretha Franklin in its tribute package on Thursday. "She worked for me on numerous occasions". "One of the greatest blessings of the work that I do is that I get the chance to meet and have conversations with some really incredible people", Lemon said.
Ritz said he saw the statement as consistent with Trump's demeaning language about women and minorities, though far less severe than some of his recent observations about black women. "She's hardly a passive, get-along, go-along singer".
Everyone here seems to have an Aretha story. "It's sad, and for the past couple of days, people have been going to see her and reaching out to her". She notes that Franklin's version of "Respect" was the quintessential "answer record" to Redding's - in this case, with the very same song.
