I found out when I went on the internet this morning, and it is worth noting that there are tributes to her on Rage tonight for those in Australia on the ABC, as well as on Foxtel. There was a story on SBS World News here in Australia about the death of Aretha Franklin, and this is quite scary but it was mentioned in the story that Aretha Franklin (the Queen of Soul) died 41 years to the day after Elvis Presley (the King of Rock and Roll) died.

When I read this, I felt my heart sink and my face turn pale. What a treasure of a man to lose. He will be missed by those who love his voice, and I hear he was a real gentleman to those around him. May he rest in peace.
