The queen of soul Aretha Franklin has passed away from cancer this morning. Earlier in the week we were told that she had entered the hospital and wasn’t expected to survive much longer. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer back in 2010 and has been in failing health for the last few months. Her last performance was in November for Elton John’s AMFAR event. She was surrounded by her family when she passed away in her Detroit home.
Here are some of my favorite songs she has sung over her amazing career.
