In 1987, she became the first women inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. One of those select events was a gala for Elton John's 25th anniversary of his AIDS foundation in November in New York City, where Franklin closed the event with a collection of songs including "I Say a Little Prayer" and "Freeway".

Missy Elliot retweeted a message she had previously shared with her following, urging everyone to celebrate living legends while they are still present. She got her start singing gospel music in a Detroit church where her father was the minister.

Wrote "Level Up" singer Ciara: "Praying for Aretha Franklin and her family right now!"
