"I'm just so sad that we had to lose her".
"We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world".
With a powerful voice and collection of hits, singer Aretha Franklin's legacy will last long beyond her 76 years. "There were times that we were asked to go to the back of the restaurant - say - or we couldn't use the bathrooms".
She announced past year she was retiring from music. Franklin became the first female singer inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Franklin's music also helped serve as a springboard for a number of young guitarists who later became legends themselves. Over the course of her career she won 18 Grammy Awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1994.
In Redding's version, the woman was sitting at home waiting for her man. Franklin turned that on its head.
"Born in Memphis and raised in Detroit, Aretha Franklin grew up performing gospel songs in her father's congregation", the former first couple said in the joint statement.
Lemon recalled the times he'd spent enjoying the Queen of Soul's music, calling it "the soundtrack of my life", something which was known even by his colleagues.
Franklin is an fantastic, groundbreaking, trailblazing artist, and her mastery as a singer could never be matched!

One of the songs I really enjoyed playing with her, because she was actually playing and singing, was A Brand New Me. To honor her mentor and civil rights icon, Franklin volunteered to sing at his funeral.
She continued to have great success throughout the later years of her career, and last year saw her release her most recent record, "A Brand New Me", which marked her 42nd studio album.
I remember her as a very strong woman.
Drummer Gayelynn McKinney is devastated that she'll never play with Aretha Franklin again. The news of her death hit him hard. The queen of soul used her voice not only to sooth hearts worldwide but as a catalyst for the civil rights movement.
"She was more than the Queen of Soul", he wrote. "She was obviously unwell, and I wasn't sure she could perform".
Tributes to the "Queen of Soul" have flowed in from entertainment figures.
"I'll be pretty much satisfied, but I'm not going to go anywhere and just sit down and do nothing".
