She also sang (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2015, attended by Obama, and her performance moved him to tears.

It had been said that Stevie visited his friend earlier this week after reports she was "gravely ill" - and now, the legendary singer has revealed that he told Aretha to "say hello" to his late sister when he visited the Franklin home on Tuesday.

Ariana Grande performed an emotional tribute to the late Aretha Franklin on Thursday night's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon". "One of the greatest blessings of the work that I do is that I get the chance to meet and have conversations with some really incredible people", Lemon said. People loved Aretha. She was a special woman. "Ain't but one Aretha Franklin", Dyson says, remembering the day that he saw the icon perform for the pontiff in Philadelphia back in 2015.

Franklin's death was confirmed by her long-time publicist, Gwendolyn Quinn, on behalf of her family, who said she died "surrounded by family and loved ones".

Siggers married June Foster, who reflected on how being close to the Queen of Soul allowed the family to meet the rich and famous.

Before the show, Grande posted a photo of herself and Franklin together. "So just want to pass on my warmest best wishes and sympathies to her family". Her body lied in repose at the museum, followed by her funeral at Greater Grace Temple.

Turkey slaps more tariffs on U.S. goods, escalating trade tensions
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan signed a decree Wednesday to raise tariffs on USA imports including cars, alcohol and tobacco. Turkey's exports to the United States previous year amounted to $8.7-billion, making it Turkey's fifth-largest export market.

LaBelle playfully downplayed the incident to Andy Cohen on a subsequent episode of "Watch What Happens Live", where she insisted that she "didn't see" the snub (despite there being a video of it) and joked that whomever Lady Franklin brushed by "wasn't me". Unfortunately, her promoter lost some money and told Franklin that he wouldn't be able to pay her until the next morning.

As Aretha Franklin is remembered for her music, she's also being remembered for her role in the civil rights movement.

Other than "Respect" - her powerful cover of the Otis Redding tune that became a feminist anthem and her calling card - Franklin had dozens of Top 40 singles, according to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

She continued: "She was a BLACK WOMAN".
