"This is very personal for me, as you can probably tell", he said.

Like all the other high-profile news organizations, Fox ran an obituary package on the Queen of Soul but forgot to look over one important detail-the imagery associated with the segment. The image was created by graphic designer Milton Glaser.

"For such a person who commanded kings and queens", Foster Siggers said, "we were at her house". "You can just imagine a teenager receiving this magazine in November 1968, opening it up and this explosion of color comes out".

During her career spanning more than five decades, Franklin has won numerous accolades and awards for her soulful blues music. A 1986 duet with George Michael, I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me), hit number one in several countries. "In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade - our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect".

Last year, Franklin surprised Robinson with an award from the Detroit City Council and described him at the time as her "oldest and dearest friend".

"It's hard to conceive of a world without her".

Her funeral will be held at Greater Grace Temple, a spokeswoman for the church confirmed to AFP, with the date and final arrangements still being worked out.

"We were walking to the house, and I heard music coming from - a piano being played and a little voice singing from this room, and I peeked in and there was Aretha sitting at the piano, playing and singing", he said. "It's just sad that he has to go there, and attach her to himself".

"Her great allegiance was to the Democratic Party", Ritz said. But while Sam Cooke and Ray Charles made the jump before her, "When Aretha's vocals got unleashed, they believed that God was everywhere". And she then received a CD from Franklin a few months later.

"Do you think your songs were the anthem for the Civil Rights Movement?" he asked.

"I'm sitting in prayer for the wonderful golden spirit Aretha Franklin", said Motown legend Diana Ross, while former Beatle Paul McCartney called her "the Queen of our souls".
