    “I am so saddened to report that the Queen of Soul and my good friend, Aretha Franklin is gravely ill,” wrote Detroit news anchor Evrod Cassimy. “I spoke with her family members this evening. She is asking for your prayers at this time. I’ll have more details as I’m allowed to release.”

    Not much soul left out there anymore. She was the epitome of soul music. Grew up a gospel singer like so many other greats. The only other female vocalist that even came close was Gladys Knight. Thanks for the great music Aretha Franklin.
