The Carters honor the soul diva during their tour.
Concert goers recognize the magnitude of Franklin’s impact on music.
“It hurts my heart. She’s the queen. She will forever have an impact on my soul […] She is forever gonna be remembered.”
Another fan commented on how Aretha Franklin lives on through younger generations.
“We probably wouldn’t have Beyonce if it wasn’t for Aretha, and that’s what we’re seeing tonight.”
J Khalid who also manned the stage paid homage to the sickly singer as well by getting the whole crowd to sing along to one of Aretha’s iconic songs.
Other artists have found ways to honor the queen of soul too. Many have taken to social media to give the artist her due respect and send love and prayer her way. The whole entertainment industry is hopeful for a recovery, despite the unlikeliness of her regaining health.
