Editorial: Aretha lives on in her music

Aretha Franklin was an American treasure. From a church choir in Detroit to megastardom, her story of talent and determination should be shared far and wide. Her voice was powerful and magnificent.

As former President Barack Obama put it in a tweet yesterday, “Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade.”

We are lucky to have had her with us as long as we did and are blessed that her music remains with us, forever.
