Artists Remember the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin

The world lost an incredible talent today when the Queen of Soul passed away. Artists took to social media to remember Aretha Franklin.

“I am just heartbroken. This cannot be happening. Oh, how I love her. Meeting her was such a highlight. She is the shero who changed my life. Her voice. Listening to her brings me closer to Heaven and I will love her forever. We have lost an American treasure. It’s the end of an era.” – Wynonna Judd

“I never had the chance to meet her, but I love her. I mean, doesn’t everyone? She is the grand dame of soul! She could sing anything and make you believe it! I regret not having met a few of my heroes and icons in the music business, and she is definitely one of them. My thoughts and prayers are with Aretha’s family. All my love and great admiration to her!” – Tanya Tucker

“I never had the pleasure of meeting Aretha Franklin, but I was extremely honored when she recorded a song I co-wrote back in the seventies. The song was called, “I May Never Get To Heaven,” and was later a No. 1 country hit for Conway Twitty. Aretha put her own unique, personal stamp on it, and as great artists often do, made the song her very own. I admired her tremendously, and never tired of telling people that she recorded a song that I had a hand in writing. Rest in peace, Ms. Aretha, and thank you for the sunshine you brought into this country boy’s life.” – Bill Anderson

“Rest in peace Aretha Franklin. An amazing talent with one of the most moving voices of all time. Your music will live on forever.” – Billy Ray Cyrus

“I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of such a musical icon. Aretha was simply the greatest singer of her generation. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.” – David Bellamy

“Aretha Franklin and I have been friends and label mates for more than sixty years. I adored her and I know the feelings were mutual. While I’m heartbroken that she’s gone I know she’s in the Lord’s arms and she’s not in pain or suffering anymore from the damn cancer that took her away from us. I’m going to hope, pray and count on the fact that I will see her again sometime. Rest in the Lord’s arms in love, Re.” -Sam Moore

 

Today, Nashville Noise remembers the life and legacy of Franklin. She’s truly a talent gone too soon.
