The family of Aretha Franklin continues to plan memorial events following the legendary singer's death on Thursday at the age of 76. Back in 2011 for "CBS Sunday Morning," Anthony Mason had the chance to visit the church that sowed Franklin's roots with the Queen of Soul herself.

Our 👑 Queen. Which room did her daddy make the 1st baby w her. Her daddy was aldo her baby daddy. She was abused at the tender age of 12 living w all these hypocritical preachers. Clarence was a child Pedophile w a documented history but back in dem days nobody said nothing.
beautiful tribute for a deserving human being. We were blessed by her existence and God Given gift. Praying comfort and love to all her family, loved ones and those who were touched by her life. God Bless!!!
I am a Jamaican fan of Aretha Franklin. I am not a dancer but when I hear her songs - gospel or otherwise - I have to do some movement. My deepest condolences to her family and friends. She is just resting. She lives on in her soul touching songs. Lots of love!
We always wait to tell someone we love them, or appreciate them or how much they mean to us and what can I do? Just do it. Life is so short. Rest Aretha. Thank you so much for your music, talent and gift..Thank you👼
1:29 Listen to her voice. It has inspired generations of singers, from gospel to country to R&B. Her father, who was a legend in his own right, never would've imagined that his daughter would be requested to sing at the inauguration of our first black president. 3:35 RIP Queen.
Well it explains why she never lifted she has kept the house up and the church for the Legacy of her father was it just me did she look short to you u can tell she has given so much she don't care who gets what now they may lay her to rest next to her father sleep sleep sleep
You know I have something else to say I felt like when I was a young girl all I knew was a reason.

Mama Aretha looks so much like her mama I know she missed her mother a great deal she loved her mother so much I can't imagine the pain that she has gone through in her life but I know that shes with her mom,dad sisters and her brother now in heaven
I just get sick and tired of how these corporate news Idiots just insist on the clogging up the damned TV screen with F*cking logos and sh*t... Could you maybe make the banner BIGGER, CBS??? Sheesh... I KNOW what channel I'm on, I know what show I'm looking at, and I KNOW it's F*cking "morning", you damned Idiots! Too many damned lawyers...
Cherie Henderson I believe her first home was on East Boston Blvd in Detroit.That was a mansion.Smokey Robinson lived on Belmont and I lived on Cardoni all on the North End.This particular house was on,I believe ,either La Salle Blvd or La Salle Gardens.
Why is Aretha shouded in such sick secrecy ? I've not read one word about whose she's survived by. Four sons There has to be grandchildren Sons are barely mentioned. I get a deep down feeling. Aretha was a lot like her Father Lived for image But behind closed doors lived a shady life. Daughter like Father I'm sure. But hopefully nowhere near as grimmy But I really don't think she was a very nice Human Being. How could she be. With a father like CL to emulate after He helped form her
She certainly had her "diva" side, and she could be difficult to get along with. I've known some well-known singers who met her early in their careers, and they said she was far from friendly or supportive. But what of it? She also had a warm, loving heart, as many who knew her well will attest. She was a human being, with frailties and faults like all of us have. But she had a God-given gift that blessed all who ever heard her or saw her perform. Can we praise people for the good they do, and for the light they carry and bestow? I believe we must . . .
As for CL, the rumors and stories about him have not been pretty at all, but we'll never know the truth. Whatever he did (or did not do) is a matter between him and his Maker. I think maybe it's a good idea to leave it at that.
I'm hurting and crying, my Mother ALWAYS, ALWAYS had Aretha Franklin's music playing in our home, and when my Mom was in the hospital dying from Hodgkin's disease ( cancer of the lymph nodes) Aretha Franklin's Gospel Music is what she listened to until she took her last breath. So now Aretha is in HEAVEN with my Mom Rebecca having a Wonderful time.
About the time of Aretha’s transition from her Earthly home to her Heavenly home, I was praying for a smooth landing for her soul. I will always remember the song, “ Never Grow Old” a song she sang at her Father’s church at an early age of her life. Your melodious voice and your legacy will live on for ever. I know you have joined the Heavenly Choir and one of the top soloist. You will truly be missed. Rest In Peace.
Rest in peace my sister you will be missed so please submit it by the Washington family in Philadelphia Pennsylvania I will never forget you I enjoyed your music since I was a kid now and I'm grown and I still enjoy music I love you but God loves you best
She was touched by the love the city of Detroit showed in dedicating a city park to the name of her father. Now there will be a park dedicated to her honor as well as well as a number of other city landmarks I'm sure. She was an integral part of the city of Detroit. Her entire family was. She was so real and affectionate. And a fathers daughter. She loved her father so much.
Yes she did it well she served her purpose on this Earth 🌏.We all Have to leave her someday.ThankyouGod for Blessing us with MamaQueen.To me she’s just like a mama I respect my elders.Sing in the Heavenly places now😃
I hope you at peace and up there with the some of the greatest artists that ever grace this earth with their talent like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Prince, James Brown, Rick James, Luther Vandross, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Aaliyah and so on hope there is peace.
No he didn’t, that was just a rumor. The father of her child was someone she knew from school. Her dad was nasty though. He fathered a daughter from a 12 year old while he was grown and married. Simple Google search...
Aretha’s mom was creole. She was a black woman. The rrule is if you have on black parent especially if it is your dad you are considered black. Because scientifically Black is the dominant gene!. Her mother was black
I am mourning and feeling hurt about Aretha Franklin passing although I did not know her personally. I suppose I am hurt because I am going to miss her representation of Soulful music or her legacy or perhaps the idea of Good music to enjoy. Aretha music can bring back the cherished memories I have of my mother or make my soul peaceful and tranquil when the chaos of the world seems too much. Aretha I will miss you and I thank you for sharing your music, your legacy, your soul! Rest Easy Queen
She actually does look like her mother...Which is exactly what I was just saying only an hour ago!
Her mother is absolutely gorgeous!
I have always loved to hear Aretha Sing ....Especially: “ Ain’t No Way “
and “ Baby, Baby, Baby “...Those Two Right There would have me in another world!
I’ll Truly Miss This Amazing Lady.
May Peace Be With You, Miss Queen Ree Ree! You’re No Longer In Pain.
Love You In Heaven, Sweetheart!
I love you Aretha! You touched so many lives. We women cried to your “You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman”... your beautiful voice will be with us forever! I hope you are up there with Luther, Ella, and the many other gospel, soulful greats. You will be sorrily missed. Rest in eternal peace, our Queen of Soul.
