Sad new ATS. Aretha Franklin has died at the age of 76. We've lost so many music greats in recent years: Michael Jackson, Prince, David Bowie, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, and now Aretha Franklin.

There are more than this list I've included however, I just want to focus on Aretha Franklin so I won't make the list too long.





Aretha Franklin, whose impassioned, riveting voice made her a titan of American music, has died after a battle with advanced pancreatic cancer, her publicist told the Associated Press. She was 76. Franklin was the loftiest name in the rich history of Detroit music and one of the transcendent cultural figures of the 20th Century. Raised on an eclectic musical diet of gospel, R&B, classical and jazz, she blossomed out of her father's Detroit church to become the most distinguished female black artist of all time, breaking boundaries while placing nearly 100 hits on Billboard’s R&B chart — 20 of them reaching No. 1. The Queen of Soul, as she was coronated in the 1960s, leaves a sprawling legacy of classic songs that includes "Respect," "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," "Chain of Fools," "Baby I Love You," "Angel," "Think," "Rock Steady," "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "Freeway of Love," along with a bestselling gospel catalog. Her death follows several years of painstakingly concealed medical issues, which led to regular show cancellations and extended absences from the public eye.


The legendary Aretha Franklin died after a bout with Pancreatic Cancer.

Regardless of their personal failures, you cannot take away their talent as artists...
