“Nothing sounded better to me than the way my grandma sings. Her voice made you feel something,” Victorie Franklin, Aretha Franklin’s granddaughter said during the funeral of the legendary artist. “You felt every word, every note, every emotion in the songs she sang. Her voice brought peace,” she added.
The queen of soul is already resting after a funeral service at Detroit’s Greater Grace Temple last Friday. Aretha Franklin died August 16th at the age of 76 due a pancreatic cancer.
Family, friends, artists, politicians, activists and fans graced the service where they celebrated the life of one of the best voices America has ever had. Franklin was buried in a shining golden casket in her adopted hometown of Detroit, Michigan.
