|In Memory of Aretha Franklin (March 25, 1942 – August 16, 2018)
She quickly became the queen of soul,
Lifting spirits was her ultimate goal.
The first lady to have her name
In the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
There was nothing she could not sing,
May her voice forever ring.
The legacy and loss, many will reflect
Recalling her song of equality and respect.
