Published: 16 August 2018 (819 Views)
76-year-old music superstar Aretha Franklin has died, according to a report by AP.

The news follows reports on Monday that the multiple award-winning artist was "gravely ill" and surrounded by her family in Detroit.

Back in 2010 Franklin was diagnosed with cancer and earlier this year cancelled a series of shows on doctor’s orders.

The popular artist's recording career spanned more than five decades and over the course of it she won 18 Grammy awards.

Franklin - who started singing as a child in the same church where her father, C. L. Franklin, was minister - had a series of number one singles including: I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You);  Respect ; Baby I Love You and Chain of Fools.
