Wczoraj, 16 sierpnia, w wieku 76 lat odeszła od nas Aretha Franklin. Artystka zmarła na raka trzustki. Swoje ostatnie chwile spędziła w otoczeniu najbliższych przyjaciół i rodziny. O jej śmierci pisaliśmy tutaj.
Hołd Królowej Soulu postanowili oddać inni artyści w swoich mediach społecznościowych.

The loss of @ArethaFranklin is a blow for everybody who loves real music: Music from the heart, the soul and the Church. Her voice was unique, her piano playing underrated – she was one of my favourite pianists. pic.twitter.com/ug5oZYywAz

Aretha Franklin is the reason why I sing from that part deep inside of me that few could ever reach. She was my favorite and will always be. What a gift she has left all of us with her musical footprints. There will never be another like her. She was truly special. #QueenOfSoul

Aretha truly sang with the spirit of God in her. She is one the Greatest singers and voices to ever walk this planet. There is only one Queen of Soul and that’s you Aretha! Sing for the angels and make them cry. You are one of the greatest we have heard seen and felt. Love to you Queen. GOD bless your Soul.
The Queen. This is a hard one. Lost my Grandma 2 weeks ago. Aretha was one of her favorites. Aretha has always been my favorite. I have already been in Aretha mode of the past couple of weeks due to my grandma passing. I feel like Aretha went to meet her. God bless Aretha Franklin. She literally provided a soundtrack to my life.
