R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Okay, we had to!
Soul queen Aretha Franklin is already a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but this fall, she'll be honored by the hall once again, as part of its American Music Masters series, according to The Associated Press.
'Retha will be the subject of a week-long celebration by the hall and Case Western Reserve University. It kicks off Oct. 31, includes an all-day symposium and ends with an all-star tribute concert on Nov. 5. Performers for that show have yet to be announced.
In a statement released Tuesday, Franklin, 69 said she was "thrilled and delighted" to be honored and planned to take part in the festivities.
