The greatest gift for me was when I heard her sing 'Until You Come Back to Me.' Someone said on one of the channels yesterday that when she sings your song, she takes it, and you don't get it back. "She worked for me on numerous occasions. She brought joy to others' lives, and she will - her voice and the essence of her will long live all of us that are here right now". She reportedly left the stage in tears following the performance. "The pop star joined house band The Roots for a special rendition of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman". Ariana told her to text an MP3, but Franklin ended up mailing her a package, which arrived months later. Her body lied in repose at the museum, followed by her funeral at Greater Grace Temple. In 2017, Franklin retired from touring, although she did commit to performing at more intimate venues.
"We have a national anthem, but I think of Aretha Franklin as our national voice", the National Portrait Gallery's associate curator of prints, drawings and media arts, Robyn Asleson, said.
Famed record producer Clive Davis also paid his respects to the Queen of Soul by tweeting out that she was "truly one of a kind" and "a national treasure to be cherished by every generation throughout the world".
"My mother is playing Aretha Franklin's album and she has on 'Dr". People loved Aretha. She was a special woman.

Franklin also performed at pre-inauguration concerts for Bill Clinton in 1993 and Jimmy Carter in 1977.
In 2010, she suffered serious health problems, but continued to perform until a year ago, her last public performance in November 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NY.
Ritz asked why Trump couldn't have simply joined legions of Americans in praising the departed singer.
The group's singer Alexandra Hsieh, says that Franklin was more than just a soul singer.
"You just couldn't listen to her without it becoming a full-on celebration of life, even simple songs". All Black people do not look alike.
