The “Queen of Soul” has gone on to the Kingdom today, as widely reported, Aretha Frankin died at 9:50 a.m.  on Thursday (August 16) at her home in Detroit, surrounded by family and friends, according to a statement on behalf of Franklin’s family from her longtime publicist Gwendolyn Quinn.

She was 76. The “official cause of death was due to advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type, which was confirmed by Franklin’s oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit,” the family statement said.
