Trump: Aretha Franklin’s Voice Was A Gift From God

Click On Detroit reports:

President Donald Trump tweeted about the passing of Aretha Franklin on Thursday. Trump, joining the chorus of reaction and tributes around social media, said, “She was a great woman, with a wonderful gift from God.” The legendary soul singer met with, performed for and was honored by many of the presidents during her long career.

In 1977, Franklin performed at the inaugural gala for President Jimmy Carter. But that wouldn’t be her only time celebrating a president’s victory. Years later, she performed “I Dreamed a Dream” at President Bill Clinton’s inauguration.

One of her more notable inauguration performances, however, came in 2009 when she performed “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” at the inauguration ceremony for President Barack Obama.
