The greatest singer EVER. My heart is about to be completely broken. I can't imagine the number of dignitaries who will show up to honor her when her sun sets.

She did it all at the greatest level (R&B, Rock, Opera, Jazz, Gospel, Pop, etc.).

I love that lady and will miss her rudeness. Laughing

I haven’t heard a voice yet that can touch her Falcon Soprano in her early days. I hope she pulls through but if she doesn’t I pray she go easy and rest peacefully. You are so appreciated and loved Aretha.

Not a week goes by I do not listen to at least one of her songs. Simply the greatest female singer of my life.

Peace and comfort to her, family, friends and thank you for bringing joy to millions of people around the world.

DETROIT (WJBK) - Fans and celebrities across the world are saying prayers for Aretha Franklin as news has come out that she is gravely ill.

Monday night, to a crowd of more than 40,000 people, Beyonce fittingly dedicated her concert with husband Jay Z in Detroit to The Queen of Soul. Detroit is Aretha's hometown, and where she is currently at home surrounded by loved ones.

"She stepped right up at the beginning of the concert and dedicated it to her, and [we're] hoping and praying that Aretha makes it," concertgoer Selam Sanders said.

The Queen is at home in the care of hospice. They are making sure she is comfortable for her transition.

Last Call: Aretha Franklin, an underrated pianist

Quote:
Tributes will pour in surely, but I wanted to point out that while her voice is unparalleled, her virtuosity on the piano is severely underrated. Those who knew Franklin called her “a child prodigy” on the keys, who knew how to play fully formed, lush gospel chords without being taught how to voice them. Watch her perform with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra from 2015 and be blown away. (Go to 7:11 of video below).

That was sweet. And a great way to remember her.

Stevie Wonder visited the singer on Tuesday at her home, her publicist, Gwendolyn Quinn, told the Associated Press. Quinn said that the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Franklin's ex-husband Glynn Turman have also visited.

“I treasured every moment that we spent together, from working in the recording studio to performing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial or simply hanging in the kitchen, and I will miss her dearly,” Jones added. “R.I.P. Ree-Ree. You will reign as the Queen forever.”

“From the time that Dinah Washington first told me that Aretha was the ‘next one’ when she was 12 years old until the present day, Aretha Franklin set the bar upon which every female singer has and will be measured,” Jones wrote. “And she did it with the professionalism, class, grace and humility that only a true Queen could.”

The greatest voice in American popular music has been stilled. Our beloved #ArethaFranklin has gone. For me, she was a musical lighthouse, guiding and inspiring with every note. I loved her so and love her still. Goodbye, Queen of Soul.

Same day as Elvis. Shocked

I would hope that we could take the occasion of Aretha Franklin’s passing to remember as Americans who we are and what we can be.

Not religious nor an Apple fanboy but I thought this was a moving sentiment from Tim Cook.

We mourn the passing of Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul. Her voice will keep lifting us, through the music she gave the world. Our thoughts are with her family, her loved ones and fans everywhere. Take her hand, precious Lord, and lead her home. 🎶
