The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, has passed away. Can you help connect her to our family tree?

+21 votes
One of the most influential voices in music, Aretha Franklin, passed away early this morning. I went to look at her profile to update it and found there wasn't one. I did her the honor this morning, but now she needs connected to our tree. I plan on continuing to improve her profile over the next few days. Do we have some folks here ready to show Ms. Aretha some R-E-S-P-E-C-T and connect her to the rest of us? Many thanks in advance. Rest in peace, Aretha.

I love Aretha Franklin. What an inspiration she was to so many people, and will continue to be.

Thank you Abby for thinking of this, and bringing RESPECT to Aretha, because she really was a NATURAL WOMAN, and I never heard that she was involved in a CHAIN OF FOOLS.

I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER for the loss of this DO RIGHT WOMAN, and THINK, that what everyone is doing here is not DAY DREAMIN, but ROCK STEADY sweet.
