Small Bite: Queen of soul, Aretha Franklin is honored by Princeton w. music doctorate. #RESPECT

Full Platter:

Legendary diva aka Queen of soul, Aretha Franklin, is probably best known for her hit single "Respect" and after all those years of preaching about respect, she is now earning the highest form of it! You go girl. GET YOURS. 

Aretha was awarded with an honorary doctorate of music by Princeton University for the legacy she has left in her musical career. (She was actually one of six people who was given this award!) The Ivy League school's trustee, Steve Oxman, spoke with NJ.Com and said: "With her singular 'Amazing Grace,' she continues to traverse musical bridges over trouble water, and by remedying us to think, do right and call on her, the Queen of Soul will forever command the world's R-E-S-P-E-C-T."

She never actually attended college, but according to reports, she has also received many other prestigious awards in the past like the honorary doctorate degrees of music in 2006 and 2010 from Berklee College of Music, and Yale University in 2006 and 2010. Wow! Cheers to Miss Franklin for all of her influential work. We can only aspire to be like her someday!
