I can’t even remember a whole song’s words. He is amazing.” Indeed, he is.

Aretha Franklin passed away on Thursday morning after a battle with pancreatic cancer. The late singer’s family released a statement regarding her death shortly after news of Aretha’s passing spread.

“In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart,” the family said. “We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family. The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins knew no bounds.”
