Tyler Perry took to social after learning the news of Aretha Franklin‘s passing to pay tribute to the “Queen of Soul.”
On Wednesday, the media mogul posted he couldn’t stop thinking about her and what her voice meant to the world.
I can’t stop thinking about you and what your voice has meant to this world. If I came home from school on a Friday and heard your song ‘Natural Woman,’ I knew my mother was happy.
But if I heard ‘You Better Think’ or ‘Respect,’ she was upset and wanted respect.
You’re the voice of the culture, the voice of a movement, the voice of all times and the undisputed one and only Queen of Soul.
Today I ‘Say a little prayer for you!!!’
A day later, he said goodbye to his friend.
No more fear of flying my friend. You’ve got angel wings now.
Thank you for your life and the legacy of music that you’ve left for us all.
It will live on forever. 1942-2018
