Rest In Peace, Aretha Franklin

Rest in peace to the Queen of Soul - Aretha Franklin.

Born March 25th, 1942 in Memphis, Tennessee, Aretha Louise Franklin got her start singing in her father's church. Her earliest recordings were part of the soundtrack of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's. She lived much of her life in Detroit, Michigan, where she died today at age 76.

She left behind over six decades of musical performances and history. Truly, she was and always will be a legend.
