Savoy Honors the Passing of the Queen of Soul

Her timeless, powerful messages have inspired activists, as she supported such historical leaders as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President Barack Obama. - L.P. Green, II, Publisher of Savoy Magazine

On behalf of the staff at Savoy magazine/L.P. Green & Partners, Inc., I want to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the legendary Aretha Franklin.

A champion for social justice, women’s rights, health care and many other causes, she made contributions to the African-American community and culture that go well beyond music and entertainment. She put actionable words into heart-touching songs about life, and she touched the lives of others by putting words into action through charitable fundraising causes she held close to her heart.

The distinctive sound of her voice has influenced countless successful performers across multiple generations and music genres. Her timeless, powerful messages have inspired activists, as she supported such historical leaders as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President Barack Obama.

May the iconic Queen of Soul’s legacy live on to touch many generations to come.
