Aretha Franklin's funeral set for August 31 in Detroit

Some of the biggest names from the music world have been posting messages of remembrance for the legendary American singer Aretha Franklin who died in Detroit in the USA on Thursday.

During another interview, Franklin was asked about the current pop divas and what she thought of them. She gave us the BLUE PRINT. Wendy asked: "You seem like the type of woman who still falls (in love), and can get as stupid as the rest of us girls ..." "Our intention was to honor the icon using a secondary image of her performing with Patti LaBelle in the full-screen graphic, but the image of Ms. Franklin was obscured in that process, which we deeply regret", the statement read.

"In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade-our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect".

"She helped us feel more connected to each other, more hopeful, more human".

"Aretha may have passed on to a better place, but the gift of her music remains to inspire us all".

Those range from around $27,000 to $29,000 per year, according to the medical school. NYU Langone says 75 percent of doctors graduate in debt at an average of $200,000.

The late singer's publicist, Gwendolyn Quinn, said Friday that the funeral, to be held at Greater Grace Temple, is limited to the Queen of Soul's family and friends. "Michelle and I send our prayers and warmest sympathies to her family and all those moved by her song".

And when Michelle, 38, got to see Aretha perform at the White House in 2015, she treated the session like a class and took notes.

Other stars, including Elton John, John Legend, and Bette Midler, also took to Twitter to remember the Queen of Soul. She was a great woman, with a wonderful gift from God, her voice.

"America has no royalty", Obama said in a statement after Franklin's death. Absolutely heartbroken she's gone, what a woman.

Franklin's fans flooded social media with tributes, many describing the effect her music had on their lives. "Thank you for everything, the melodies and the movements". The now legendary performance blew the audience away.
