The Gospel community celebrates Aretha Franklin

After news broke yesterday that Aretha Franklin passed, the gospel community immediately took to social media to celebrate her.  Afterall, Aretha began in her father's church singing.  Although in an interview with 60 Minutes in 1990, she admitted she did not want to sing, her father's encouragement paid off as she has inspired other artists to spread the message in and out of the church.  From Kirk Franklin, to Tasha Cobbs, to even here at home, Jennifer Hudson posted about what the #QueenofSoul meant to them.
