Tributes have poured in for the beloved and iconic singer Aretha Franklin from friends, musicians, politicians and fans after the legendary "Queen of Soul" died aged 76.

The world lost Franklin Thursday at the age of 76 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Turman recalled some of the good memories with his former wife that he remained close with until her death on Thursday, but also said she was known to be stubborn.

"She was indeed the Queen of Soul. Thus‚ we join in saying a little prayer for Mama Franklin‚ that her soul may rest in the same proud soul that her soul music gave to humanity in general". No one has ever given us pleasure with such full-throated abandon as Aretha Franklin did, and does. Then her funeral will be held at Greater Grace Temple.

"We talked about doing some music as recent as two months ago, and we had been talking about it", Wonder said.

"I mean, Aretha Franklin called me". "We sang at the White House and she was so sweet and she was so cute, and I was like, 'How are you a real person?' It's an honor to have met her". Franklin was like her work: passionate, yes, but also complicated and ultimately unknowable.

She tweeted: "Aretha Franklin". She helped us feel more connected to each other, more hopeful, more human.

"We sincerely apologize to Aretha Franklin's family and friends", Jessica Santostefano, Fox News vice president, said in a statement. It featured a close-up image of Franklin and a still photo of LaBelle singing in the background. Talk about queens-she was definitely the queen.

In unaired moments of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah told the audience how he would sing her songs with his mother and reflected on how Franklin wouldn't perform for segregated audiences.
