#SoulfulSaturday HAILS to the Queen!

Often imitated, but never duplicated #SoulfulSaturday honors and hails to the Queen. Being an inspiration to a whole generation, her longevity and perseverance has had a everlasting impact throughout the nation. Individuals of all creeds and backgrounds paid their sincere respects to the all time great, Soul-Stirring Aretha Franklin on yesterday. Celebrating her life with a massive 6-hour home going, which included R&B vocalists Fantasia and Jennifer Hudson, the world watched as our Queen was put to rest in style.

This week, we have a visual of why she will forever be remembered as the Queen of #SOUL!
