The Queen

Ladies and gentlemen, the Queen has left the building.

Sadly, Aretha Franklin (also known as The Queen of Soul) passed away yesterday at the age of 76.  The prolific singer, songwriter and actress was known for her unmistakable soulful sound.

But while her sound was unmistakable, apparently her image was not, at least to Fox News who posted a tribute graphic that included a photo of Patti LaBelle!

This sadly suggests at least someone at Fox News couldn't distinguish one African American diva from another.

Oh, but what fodder for Facebook!  Almost immediately memes starting showing up that frankly had me laughing out loud!

At least the laughter from these memes helped ease the pain of such a great loss to American music.  Aretha will be imitated but never duplicated.

R.I.P. our Queen.
