Aretha Franklin, the "Queen of Soul," dies at 76
Aretha Franklin, universally known as the “Queen of Soul," died on Thursday at 9:50 a.m. at her home in Detroit at the age of 76.
According to her publicist, Gwendolyn Quinn, the cause was advanced pancreatic cancer.
Since the news spread of Franklin's condition earlier this week, the legendary singer was visited by Stevie Wonder, Jesse Jackson, and others. According to Billboard, a tribute concert -- dubbed Clive Davis Presents: A Tribute to Aretha Franklin -- was quickly planned as well and is set for Nov. 14 at Madison Square Garden.
