Aretha Franklin Dies At Age 76

Chris Stokes

Aretha Franklin, the “Queen of Soul” whose recordings of such classics as “Respect” and “Chain of Fools” made her the first female artist to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, died Thursday of advanced pancreatic cancer. She was 76.

Franklin died at her Detroit home at at 9:50 a.m.

“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 singer’s family said in a statement to the Associated Press. “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.”

The family added: “We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world. Thank you for your compassion and prayers. We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on. As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.”

Franklin had dealt with undisclosed health issues that had kept her offstage in recent months. In March of 2018, she canceled a pair of scheduled concerts due to what her management described as doctor’s orders. In subsequent months, she canceled scheduled performances in Boston and Toronto, with management again saying that her doctors had told her to “stay off the road and rest completely.”

Over the course of her career, Franklin received multiple honors, including The National Medal of Arts and The Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Pray For Las Vegas: Lone Gunmen Kills 58 & Injures Hundreds More

in News.

vegas-chris stokes

A gunman identified as Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and injured more than 515 others by firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada towards the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

Authorities said no other shooters were involved and the US Department of Homeland Security added that there was no “specific credible threat involving other public venues.”

The deadliest mass shooting in US history targeted the audience at the festival on an 15-acre lot across Las Vegas Boulevard from the hotel. The death toll surpasses that of the Orlando, Florida shooting at the Pulse nightclub in June 2016, where 49 were killed.
An off-duty police officer attending the concert was among those killed. Authorities have not yet publicly named the other victims, and provided a contact number for family and friends seeking information: 1-866-535-5654. Police confirmed that two officers on duty were injured.

US president Donald Trump addressed the nation after initially tweeting that he sends his “warmest condolences” to victims and their families: “We are joined together today in sadness, shock and grief. It was an act of pure evil. The FBI and the Department of Homeland security are working closely with local authorities to assist with the investigation and they will provide updates as to the investigation and how it develops,” he said.

Trump also thanked local authorities, “the speed with which they acted is miraculous. To have found the shooter so quickly after the first shots were fired is something we for which we will always be thankful. We cannot fathom their pain, we cannot imagine their loss. The families of the victims we are praying for you, we are here for you.”

He did not mention gun control despite the speech being on the deadliest mass shooting in US history. This is especially pertinent as the shooting took place in Nevada, which has some of the laxest laws on guns and ammunition in the US.

Joseph Lombardo, the Las Vegas sheriff, said there was only one shooter—”a lone wolf” named as the 64-year-old Paddock—who was found dead in his hotel room. Police confirmed he was a resident of Mesquite, Nevada, a retirement and golf community of about 20,000 that is 80 miles from Las Vegas. Mesquite police spokesman Quinn Averett said that Paddock had no prior arrests or even a record for a single traffic violation.

Lombardo said there is nothing “derogatory” in the background of the suspect and that “we believe the individual killed himself prior to our entry.” Some 10 guns were found in Paddock’s room, from which he fired multiple rounds.

The police say the investigation will be long and protracted. The Clark County district attorney, Steve Woodson, said that “this was a classic WMD. This was a weapon and a man of mass destruction. This doesn’t involve politics. All of us are Nevadans. We’re working to get through this.”

Paddock’s house was under search by authorities. Meanwhile, the brother of the shooter, Eric Paddock, went on CBS News and described his shock at what transpired. He said he was confused how his brother obtained automatic weapons and that Stephen Paddock was “just a guy that lived in a house in Mesquite,” and who “ate burritos.”

The police said it all started when around 10:08pm local time, the police received calls that multiple shots were being fired at the concert.

The police found out that the shooter was on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay hotel and after a SWAT team used a controlled explosion to breach the room, he was “engaged.” Authorities say he had already been shot by the time authorities entered his room. Our prayers and thoughts go out to all the families of the victims involved in this terrible tragedy.
