Country Stars React to Aretha’s Death
Country stars turned to social media to react to the death of Aretha Franklin on Thursday, August 16th after a battle with cancer at the age of 76.
The choir of angels now have the greatest voice of all time to lead, praise and join in to sing before Jesus. I wanted to share this photo because it shows just how soulful Aretha was without uttering a word. To say I was humbled to be in her presence would be an understatement. pic.twitter.com/R2lxjXwDO8

The queen of soul…
There will never be another.
So much love and respect from the McGraw family.
A friend of mine told me once,
“when you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced, live your life so that when you’re gone, the world cries and you rejoice.” #ArethaFranklin pic.twitter.com/7U9n4FdzSv

She could hit every note, but the greatest gift was that you felt every word. Truly the Queen. Rest peacefully, Aretha. pic.twitter.com/dzCLhuzmon

Aretha Franklin was the baddest female vocalist of all time. The pinnacle of emotional expression through voice. It was in her soul & blood. She was raised in the church & you could feel it in each note. She filled hearts & souls with her divine voice. God Bless her & may she RIP pic.twitter.com/Ge3EuyUyXo
