The "official cause of death was due to advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type, which was confirmed by Franklin's oncologist, Dr Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit", the family statement said. "To this day I still listen to that record and I still get goosebumps".

Trump did not explain further when he said he knew Franklin well and she "worked for" him. "It's an honor to have met her".

Asked later what the song meant to her, she told Vogue: "I can relate to it very easily". "I've had many people influence me, but nothing like Aretha". "She believed, I think that most of all she was doing God's work, and she was".

"For as long as I can remember, I've been listening to and loving Aretha in my house, at picnics, at cookouts, at parties, in the vehicle, on the plane, wherever I could listen to her". "There is no one who can touch her", wrote Mary J. Blige in Rolling Stone, when the magazine chose Franklin as the top singer of all time.

The site reads that Trump wanted Franklin to perform in order to unite the country after a "brutal, bruising presidential election". He visited her in a room where she was getting ready, and she looked at him and said, "Rev. Al, it don't get better than that, Aretha getting her hair done in the White House with a black president!"

"I don't know who the lady was", LaBelle told Cohen. Absolutely heartbroken she's gone, what a woman.

Similarly, the Fillmore Detroit and the Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts have also put up tributes to Aretha.

Music culture owes Franklin a debt for bringing ecstatic pentecostal fervour to popular music, pushing the expressive boundaries of the contemporary singing voice. She later called off the wedding, but the two continued their relationship. "It's just sad that he has to go there, and attach her to himself".

"I was able to feel her pulse, which was strong", he said.

"That's okay, @FoxNews. We often confuse you for a real network".
