Paying Respect: Asteroid Honors Aretha Franklin's Unforgettable Legacy

Posed portrait of Aretha Franklin

Lemon recalled the times he'd spent enjoying the Queen of Soul's music, calling it "the soundtrack of my life", something which was known even by his colleagues.

The Recording Academy called Franklin "an incomparable artist" and "one of the most profound voices in music" whose "distinctive sound, unforgettable recordings, and giving spirit will continue to be celebrated worldwide". "She will forever be our Queen of Soul". She spoke with Galloway about what Aretha Franklin meant to her. Franklin died in her home in Detroit at age 76 from pancreatic cancer. "She gave back; she serviced much", said Anthony.

I said "Oh, well let me pull over", because I was driving and I was like I need to pull over right now. "As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy during this hard time". "When you're that great, like Aretha, you've got to do it justice". And we didn't buy gas where we could not use the bathrooms.

She had ended the performance with what were see as cryptic words at the time: "Please keep me in your prayers". She supposes they might've shared a few viewpoints on the music industry.

"Her music was deepened by her connection to the struggles and the triumphs of the African American experience", he said in a statement. "You are a legend and your soul will never be forgotten". But it was canceled because of a lack of ticket sales. Butler says Franklin was extremely gifted and extremely demanding. "Because they're very meticulous about their work". Franklin began producing a chain of hits including the song "Respect", which reached number one on the charts in 1967 and earned Franklin her first two Grammy Awards.

As she rose in popularity, Franklin did not abandon her sense of activism. The accolades poured in.

In 1987, she became the first female artist inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In a 2014 interview, George explained: 'We did end up doing the chorus together, which was phenomenal-she wanted to do it that way. She has performed at the inaugurations of three presidents: Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

Rest well Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul. "The sickness had started at that time though". But her career was revived in 1980 with a cameo appearance in the smash movie "The Blues Brothers" and her switch to Arista Records.

Ellman said Franklin's singing reminded him of the instrument he's played for decades.

Aretha Franklin's bass player has described her as a generous and kind person who was an "icon" in her hometown of Detroit.
