Barbra Streisand is one of the most famous voices in the music industry and even she couldn't stay indifferent to the loss of Aretha Franklin.


Franklin, who was considered to be the Queen of Soul, drew her last breath on Thursday, August 16, 2018, and Streisand immediately posted a little tribute in her honor.

The singer took to her Twitter account to share a very special photo of herself posing alongside Franklin from when they performed together in 2012.

At the time, the duo got together to perform as a tribute to the late composer Marvin Hamlisch, who worked with both artists and whom they deeply respected.

Along with the picture, Streisand wrote a few words remembering how brilliant Franklin was and how her 'commitment to civil rights made an indelible impact on the world.'

She also added that it was hard o imagine a world without Franklin in. But she wasn't the only one who had something to say about the Queen of Soul; Terre Blair Hamlisch, Marvin's widow, also paid tribute to her.


"Aretha, I will never forget your kindness and love waiting for me backstage with roses after driving all the way to NYC for Marvin’s memorial to sing. I love you, Marvin loves you, and I will be praying for you."

Terre Blair Hamlisch, Marvin Hamlisch, August 16, 2018.



Franklin passed away at the age of 76 following a long battle with advanced pancreatic cancer and, just like Streisand, other celebrities took to their social media accounts to remember the music icon.

Carole King, who co-wrote (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, showed her love, respect and gratitude towards Franklin, reminding her fans and followers of her legendary career.

Paul McCartney also honored the late 76-year-old by saying that she inspired many people throughout the years and that, although she will be missed, her greatness will forever live with all of us.
