Aretha Franklin Through the Years

Aretha Franklin signing her record contract with Atlantic Records in 1966 alongside her husband and manager Ted White and Jerry Wexler

That, she quipped, was Gloria Steinem's role.

Patti LaBelle didn't comment on the mix up, but posted her own tribute to Aretha on social media.

"I'm sure she knew of all the people who cared about her", he explained. Her body lied in repose at the museum, followed by her funeral at Greater Grace Temple.

"Women's Rights Movement should have her name written all over", he said. "Aretha was intersectional before the term existed".

- Franklin has won 18 Grammy awards.

Franklin was born in Memphis, Tenn. on March 25, 1942.

The certificate also says that Aretha will be entombed at Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit. It's hard now to imagine a male voice singing the song.

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".

Omarosa Says Trump Is 'Obsessed' With Ivanka - Calls Relationship 'Sickening'
Sanders issued a rare correction on her Twitter , but the apology doesn't mention the actual number of jobs created under Obama. Manigault-Newman writes that she convinced Trump not to pursue the idea, and to never mention it to anyone else.

No small part in that year's momentum was her signature single, "Respect", the opening track on Never Loved A Man. But to call her the greatest female singer is to ignore that in the view of so many she was the greatest singer, period.

"She's always been a warrior - a strong, strong woman and a fighter". It's a love song, of course. From that point forward, nearly every Franklin recording became an instant soul classic.

Over on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert reminisced about watching Franklin perform at the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors. As for President Barack Obama, he was wiping away tears. "It's just sad that he has to go there, and attach her to himself". He also celebrated the "extraordinary legacy" of the soul, pop and R&B virtuoso, calling her "terrific".

She did just about everything she every wanted on the stage and in the studio. He visited her in a room where she was getting ready, and she looked at him and said, "Rev. Al, it don't get better than that, Aretha getting her hair done in the White House with a black president!" "I am a natural woman".

His sister passed away earlier this year.

"That's okay, @FoxNews. We often confuse you for a real network". In an excellent tribute in the Providence Journal, Andy Smith describes a phone interview he did with Franklin in 1997.

"You all wouldn't be here if she'd left, you'd be in LA or NY".

Grande said Franklin even called her once asking if she'd listen to a family member's music. "And as long as we're together baby, show some respect for me".
