Tiny Harris wanted to share something on her Instagram account in the memory of Aretha Franklin.
Reports surfaced about her being "gravelly ill", according to Showbiz411. "She helped us feel more connected to each other, more hopeful, more human". Then her funeral will be held at Greater Grace Temple. "She will be missed!" tweeted the USA president. In 2010, Rolling Stone magazine put her at the top of its list of the 100 greatest singers of all time, male or female. We thank her so much.
"For more than 50 years, she stirred our souls", said the former USA president in a joint statement with his wife, the former secretary of state.

The canvas further supports the cheese theory as the fabric type suggests the container was once home to a solid. Nearby, they found a scrap of canvas fabric that was likely used to preserve and cover the ancient blob of food.
One commenter believes that Tiny is also a legend and says "Man Tiny is a living legend herself the fact that she's been in the game so long to have pics with and meet all these legends". A date for the funeral at the church has not yet been given, and it's not known yet if it will be open to the public.
Franklin's declining health was first disclosed on the Showbiz 411 website late Sunday by Roger Friedman, a reporter and family friend. She died yesterday at her home in Detroit.
In 2010, she suffered serious health problems, but continued to perform until late past year, singing last in November 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NY.
- Clinton awarded Franklin the National Medal of Arts, while President George W. Bush awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honour, in 2005. That same year, Detroit named a street after her.
