Aretha Franklin, known for having one of the greatest voices in music history, died Thursday after a long battle with advanced pancreatic cancer.
Aretha passed away in her Detroit home where she was under hospice care. She'd been in failing health for many months and she was down to 86 pounds.
She held the record for the most entries on the Hot 100 list of any female artist for nearly 40 years, only to be dethroned in 2017 by Nicki Minaj.
She won 18 Grammys and was the first woman ever inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
She was surrounded by friends and family when she passed.
RIP our friend.
