Aretha Franklin's Family To Hold Public Viewing Before Funeral

Franklin, 76, was surrounded by close friends and family in her last moments. He praised the legacy of the woman better known as the "queen of soul". The image was created by graphic designer Milton Glaser. "But, you know, another similarity to that is the song that I wrote, 'Until You Come Back to Me.' ... We sang at the White House and she was so sweet, she was so cute", she told Fallon. People everywhere celebrated the Queen of Soul and paid tribute to her in their own ways, but the Detroit Tigers found a flawless one. "Thank you, Aretha!" Carrey, who begun painting six years ago, captioned the photo. This website is not intended for users located within the European Economic Area. "More than once, I've met a hero of mine, but nothing compared to getting to know Aretha Franklin - Ms. Franklin".

Her Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1994 and Grammy Legend Award in 1991 were also testament to her enormous standing in the entertainment industry, but it was comments like those from contemporaries, such as Barbara Streisand, that echoed around the world yesterday.

"I said, 'I'm honest about it. Want me to go home, clean up, scrub your floors?' She laughed and she said, 'No I don't want you to scrub my floors'".

Robinson's admiration for her only grew over the decades.

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.

For the most part, it was a nice gesture however there was one line that many people just couldn't overlook and that was when Trump said, "she worked for me on numerous occasions".

"You just couldn't listen to her without it becoming a full-on celebration of life, even simple songs".

Given Aretha Franklin's incredible talent and the generations of people who loved her, Obama obviously wasn't the only big name to humbly pay their respects after learning of her passing.

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

Gwendolyn Quinn, a spokeswoman for the family, said she believed that the viewing would be open-casket but that those arrangements had not yet been finalised.
