Taylor Swift Honors Aretha At Detroit Concert
Taylor Swift brought Ford Field in Detroit to a hush in honor of the Queen of Soul
At a sold out show at Ford Field in Detroit, Taylor Swift took a few moments to honor the great Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. According to the Detroit Free Press
Detroit was the latest stop on Swift's Reputation Stadium Tour, and she took the opportunity to pay homage to Aretha Franklin. Swift spoke reverently about the late soul icon and had the stadium darkened as she led a minute of silence.
A hush came over the crowd as the pop-star talked about the Queen and took a moment to reflect on the profound influence Aretha had on the music industry and fans alike.
Taylor's sweet reflection on the life and influence of Aretha Franklin is just the start of the of the opportunity for fans and friends to honor her. According the the Detroit Free Press, this was just the start of events over the next few days for the funeral of Aretha...
Aretha Franklin's funeral services have begun and will span four days, with two public viewings available to her fans and community. On Tuesday, it was announced that Ariana Grande will join Stevie Wonder, Faith Hill and Jennifer Hudson, who are among the many stars slated to honor Franklin at this week's memorial events.
I can only hope that Aretha knew how many lives she touched and how revered she truly was.
