Aretha Franklin's music quickly climbed the iTunes' charts following her death on Thursday. Ariana Grande was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, and she chose to honor Franklin by joining The Roots for a cover of the latter song. Then her funeral will be held at Greater Grace Temple. "She will be missed!".
A pool report from the White House quoted him: "I want to begin today by expressing my condolences to the family of a person I knew well".
Shortly after signing with the label, she had her first number one hit, "I Never Loved a Man". She was the true Queen of Soul.
In any case, his comments were seen as somewhat disparaging and pretty disrespectful.
The actor revealed that Franklin was conscious but unable to communicate during his visit, but he said he knew she was aware of his presence.
Below, listen to a playlist of highlights from Aretha Franklin's awesome lifetime of music.

To that end, Omarosa attempted to contact me just two days ago, but I refused to accept her call. The source claimed: "Melania is exhausted of being quiet and hiding inside the White House".
She added that the channel's intention had been to honor the soul superstar who passed away on Thursday at the age of 76. Her 1978 Almighty Fire album was as close as she got, and sadly underperformed commercially, which is a shame as much it was laden with funk as on the title track. No one has ever given us pleasure with such full-throated abandon as Aretha Franklin did, and does.
"For more than six decades since, every time she sang, we were all graced with a glimpse of the divine".
"America has no royalty", former president and first lady Barack and Michelle Obama said in a statement shortly after the sad news broke.
Her signature song, "Respect", a glorious and intense remake of Otis Redding's anthem, will forever ring in our ears when we feel we aren't receiving the consideration we deserve. It featured a close-up image of Franklin and a still photo of LaBelle singing in the background. The family moved to Detroit when Aretha was five, and her parents separated a year later; she remained with her father, and due to his charisma and regional renown as a preacher, she found herself growing up in the presence of gospel and soul icons like Mahalia Jackson (a family friend), Inez Andrews, and Jackie Wilson. She gave us the BLUE PRINT. "I am infinitely THANKFUL".
Aretha Franklin is being remembered as a "one-of-a-kind" singer, a civil rights activist and cultural legend unlike any other.
