- Sarah Cooper (@sarahcpr) August 16, 2018America @FoxNews doesn't know the difference to Aretha Franklin or Patti Labelle. "For more than six decades since, every time she sang, we were all graced with a glimpse of the divine".

A cover of Ben E. King's chart-smashing single, Franklin took a song about the power of music to evoke painful memories and thrust her own power onto it, instilling an even greater level of hurt and yearning into her version with the Dixie Flyers.

She was the first female artist to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In 2005, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest award for a USA civilian, by then-president George W. Bush.

Every once in a while, there is a music performance that takes your breath away. Her family made Detroit their home just a few short years later and she grew up singing in her dad's house of worship, New Bethel Baptist Church on Linwood. It was Questlove, however, who convinced Grande to do it. Though her influence was felt throughout music, a critical part of her legacy lies in gospel, where she got her start. Politicians and activists - along with numerous gospel superstars of the day - were a fixture in the family home.

But her career didn't stop there.

She tweeted: "Aretha Franklin". "But, you know, another similarity to that is the song that I wrote, 'Until You Come Back to Me.' ..."

Franklin - an 18-time Grammy victor with a clear, rich voice able to span musical genres - influenced generations of singers with unforgettable hits including "Respect" (1967), "Natural Woman" (1968) and "I Say a Little Prayer" (1968).

Her coffin is to be "entombed" along with the remains of her father, the Reverend C.L. Franklin, and her brother, Cecil Franklin, and sisters Carolyn and Erma Franklin. The greatest singer and musician of my lifetime.
