As soon as your kids begin to go online, it\u2019s important to explain your expectations of their behavior. By acting responsibly and respectfully, they will enjoy their time online and get the best of the internet while mostly avoiding things such as cyberbullying and inappropriate content. Here are some basics to share with your child:

\u2014 Communicate appropriately. Use the right language for your audience. You might write or speak to a teacher differently from a friend. And never use all caps!

\u2014 Keep private things private. Don\u2019t share personal information, including passwords, your home address, inappropriate images, and gossip.

\u2014 Respect others. Be courteous. Disagree politely.

\u2014 Don\u2019t lie, steal, or cheat. Don\u2019t try to deceive others. Remember to give credit where credit is due. And, although it\u2019s easy to copy others\u2019 work, download things without permission, or use game cheat codes, don\u2019t do it.

\u2014 Be an \u201cupstander.\u201d If someone you know is being targeted by a bully, stand up for that person. You would want him or her to do the same for you.

\u2014 Report misbehavior. The Internet is a giant community, and you can help it be a nice place.

\u2014 Follow your family\u2019s rules. If your parent tells you to avoid certain websites or to stop texting after a certain time, listen. The more you act responsibly, the more privileges you\u2019ll get.

\u2014 Think before you post, text, or share. Consider how you and others might feel after you\u2019ve posted something. It\u2019s not always easy to take back what you\u2019ve said online, and your online behavior can create a lasting footprint.

A sparkling clean car can make your older vehicle feel brand new again but getting your car professionally detailed can cost you as much as a nice dinner out or a new pair of shoes. Fortunately, an initial investment in a few cleaning supplies and a little elbow grease can help you detail your car like the pros without breaking the bank.

1) Brush away dirt.

Getting rid of stubborn caked in dirt that builds up inside your car requires some extra effort, but the result is worth the workout. First, remove everything from inside your car\u2014that includes all those coffee cups you swore you\u2019d throw out yesterday. Then, use an old toothbrush to scrub the cracks between your seats and hard to reach areas of carpet under seats. As you\u2019re loosening dirt and debris, follow the brush with a cordless handheld vacuum.

Homasy Rechargeable Handheld Vacuum Cordless available from Amazon

2) Avoid acid-based degreasers.

When you\u2019re cleaning your tires at home, opt for an acid-free degreaser. Spray the wheels with a hose to remove surface debris and brake dust, then use an acid-free degreaser using a wheel brush to work between crevices and rims. Spray off the degreaser for sparkling tires.

Coralpearl Wheel and Rim Tire Detailing Scrubber available from Amazon

Oil Eater Cleaner and Degreaser available from Amazon

3) Double up on buckets.

When cleaning the exterior of your car, double up on buckets. Fill one bucket with a car cleaning solution mixed according to the bottle\u2019s instructions, then fill the other with clean water. Dunk your sponge into the bucket with clean water and squeeze it out in between each swipe with soapy water to prevent spreading dirt around on the surface of your car.

Rubbermaid Roughneck Square Bucket available from Amazon

4) Wax in small sections.

Waxing in smaller sections ensures the perfect finish. Use a light pressure to apply paste wax with overlapping. When the wax starts to look matte and dry after about 5 minutes, remove it with a microfiber cloth. Only wax a clean and completely dry car.

Turtle Wax Paste Polish Wax available from Amazon

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Aretha Franklin, the undisputed \"Queen of Soul\" who sang with matchless style on such classics as \"Think,\" ''I Say a Little Prayer\" and her signature song, \"Respect,\" and stood as a cultural icon around the globe, has died at age 76 from pancreatic cancer.

Publicist Gwendolyn Quinn tells The Associated Press through a family statement that Franklin died Thursday at 9:50 a.m. at her home in Detroit. The statement said \"Franklin's official cause of death was due to advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type, which was confirmed by Franklin's oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute\" in Detroit.

The family added: \"In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family. The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins knew no bounds.\"

The statement continued:

\"We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world. Thank you for your compassion and prayers. We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on. As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.\"

Funeral arrangements will be announced in the coming days.

Franklin, who had battled undisclosed health issues in recent years, had in 2017 announced her retirement from touring.

A professional singer and accomplished pianist by her late teens, a superstar by her mid-20s, Franklin had long ago settled any arguments over who was the greatest popular vocalist of her time. Her gifts, natural and acquired, were a multi-octave mezzo-soprano, gospel passion and training worthy of a preacher's daughter, taste sophisticated and eccentric, and the courage to channel private pain into liberating song.

She recorded hundreds of tracks and had dozens of hits over the span of a half century, including 20 that reached No. 1 on the R&B charts. But her reputation was defined by an extraordinary run of top 10 smashes in the late 1960s, from the morning-after bliss of \"(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,\" to the wised-up \"Chain of Fools\" to her unstoppable call for \"Respect.\"

Her records sold millions of copies and the music industry couldn't honor her enough. Franklin won 18 Grammy awards. In 1987, she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Clive Davis, the music mogul who brought her to Arista Records and helped revive her career in the 1980s, said he was \"devastated\" by her death.

\"She was truly one of a kind. She was more than the Queen of Soul. She was a national treasure to be cherished by every generation throughout the world,\" he said in a statement. \"Apart from our long professional relationship, Aretha was my friend. Her loss is deeply profound and my heart is full of sadness.\"

Fellow singers bowed to her eminence and political and civic leaders treated her as a peer. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was a longtime friend, and she sang at the dedication of King's memorial, in 2011. She performed at the inaugurations of Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, and at the funeral for civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks. Clinton gave Franklin the National Medal of Arts. President George W. Bush awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in 2005.

Franklin's best-known appearance with a president was in January 2009, when she sang \"My Country 'tis of Thee\" at Barack Obama's inauguration. She wore a gray felt hat with a huge, Swarovski rhinestone-bordered bow that became an Internet sensation and even had its own website. In 2015, she brought Obama and others to tears with a triumphant performance of \"Natural Woman\" at a Kennedy Center tribute to the song's co-writer, Carole King.

Franklin endured the exhausting grind of celebrity and personal troubles dating back to childhood. She was married from 1961 to 1969 to her manager, Ted White, and their battles are widely believed to have inspired her performances on several songs, including \"(Sweet Sweet Baby) Since You've Been Gone,\" ''Think\" and her heartbreaking ballad of despair, \"Ain't No Way.\" The mother of two sons by age 16 (she later had two more), she was often in turmoil as she struggled with her weight, family problems and financial predicaments. Her best known producer, Jerry Wexler, nicknamed her \"Our Lady of Mysterious Sorrows.\"

Franklin married actor Glynn Turman in 1978 in Los Angeles but returned to her hometown of Detroit the following year after her father was shot by burglars and left semi-comatose until his death in 1984. She and Turman divorced that year.

Despite growing up in Detroit, and having Smokey Robinson as a childhood friend, Franklin never recorded for Motown Records; stints with Columbia and Arista were sandwiched around her prime years with Atlantic Records. But it was at Detroit's New Bethel Baptist Church, where her father was pastor, that Franklin learned the gospel fundamentals that would make her a soul institution.

Aretha Louise Franklin was born March 25, 1942, in Memphis, Tennessee. The Rev. C.L. Franklin soon moved his family to Buffalo, New York, then to Detroit, where the Franklins settled after the marriage of Aretha's parents collapsed and her mother (and reputed sound-alike) Barbara returned to Buffalo.

C.L. Franklin was among the most prominent Baptist ministers of his time. He recorded dozens of albums of sermons and music and knew such gospel stars as Marion Williams and Clara Ward, who mentored Aretha and her sisters Carolyn and Erma. (Both sisters sang on Aretha's records, and Carolyn also wrote \"Ain't No Way\" and other songs for Aretha). Music was the family business and performers from Sam Cooke to Lou Rawls were guests at the Franklin house. In the living room, the shy young Aretha awed friends with her playing on the grand piano.

Franklin occasionally performed at New Bethel Baptist throughout her career; her 1987 gospel album \"One Lord One Faith One Baptism\" was recorded live at the church.

Her most acclaimed gospel recording came in 1972 with the Grammy-winning album \"Amazing Grace,\" which was recorded live at New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in South Central Los Angeles and featured gospel legend James Cleveland, along with her own father (Mick Jagger was one of the celebrities in the audience). It became one of of the best-selling gospel albums ever.

The piano she began learning at age 8 became a jazzy component of much of her work, including arranging as well as songwriting. \"If I'm writing and I'm producing and singing, too, you get more of me that way, rather than having four or five different people working on one song,\" Franklin told The Detroit News in 2003.

Franklin was in her early teens when she began touring with her father, and she released a gospel album in 1956 through J-V-B Records. Four years later, she signed with Columbia Records producer John Hammond, who called Franklin the most exciting singer he had heard since a vocalist he promoted decades earlier, Billie Holiday. Franklin knew Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr. and considered joining his label, but decided it was just a local company at the time.

Franklin recorded several albums for Columbia Records over the next six years. She had a handful of minor hits, including \"Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With a Dixie Melody\" and \"Runnin' Out of Fools,\" but never quite caught on as the label tried to fit into her a variety of styles, from jazz and show songs to such pop numbers as \"Mockingbird.\" Franklin jumped to Atlantic Records when her contract ran out, in 1966.

\"But the years at Columbia also taught her several important things,\" critic Russell Gersten later wrote. \"She worked hard at controlling and modulating her phrasing, giving her a discipline that most other soul singers lacked. She also developed a versatility with mainstream music that gave her later albums a breadth that was lacking on Motown LPs from the same period.

\"Most important, she learned what she didn't like: to do what she was told to do.\"

At Atlantic, Wexler teamed her with veteran R&B musicians from Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, and the result was a tougher, soulful sound, with call-and-response vocals and Franklin's gospel-style piano, which anchored \"I Say a Little Prayer,\" ''Natural Woman\" and others.

Of Franklin's dozens of hits, none was linked more firmly to her than the funky, horn-led march \"Respect\" and its spelled out demand for \"R-E-S-P-E-C-T.\"

Writing in Rolling Stone magazine in 2004, Wexler said: \"It was an appeal for dignity combined with a blatant lubricity. There are songs that are a call to action. There are love songs. There are sex songs. But it's hard to think of another song where all those elements are combined.\"

Franklin had decided she wanted to \"embellish\" the R&B song written by Otis Redding, whose version had been a modest hit in 1965, Wexler said.

\"When she walked into the studio, it was already worked out in her head,\" the producer wrote. \"Otis came up to my office right before 'Respect' was released, and I played him the tape. He said, 'She done took my song.' He said it benignly and ruefully. He knew the identity of the song was slipping away from him to her.\"

In a 2004 interview with the St. Petersburg (Florida) Times, Franklin was asked whether she sensed in the '60s that she was helping change popular music.

\"Somewhat, certainly with 'Respect,' that was a battle cry for freedom and many people of many ethnicities took pride in that word,\" she answered. \"It was meaningful to all of us.\"

In 1968, Franklin was pictured on the cover of Time magazine and had more than 10 Top 20 hits in 1967 and 1968. At a time of rebellion and division, Franklin's records were a musical union of the church and the secular, man and woman, black and white, North and South, East and West. They were produced and engineered by New Yorkers Wexler and Tom Dowd, arranged by Turkish-born Arif Mardin and backed by an interracial assembly of top session musicians based mostly in Alabama.

Her popularity faded during the 1970s despite such hits as the funky \"Rock Steady\" and such acclaimed albums as the intimate \"Spirit in the Dark.\" But her career was revived in 1980 with a cameo appearance in the smash movie \"The Blues Brothers\" and her switch to Arista Records. Franklin collaborated with such pop and soul artists as Luther Vandross, Elton John, Whitney Houston and George Michael, with whom she recorded a No. 1 single, \"I Knew You Were Waiting (for Me).\" Her 1985 album \"Who's Zoomin' Who\" received some of her best reviews and included such hits as the title track and \"Freeway of Love.\"

Critics consistently praised Franklin's singing but sometimes questioned her material; she covered songs by Stephen Sondheim, Bread, the Doobie Brothers. For Aretha, anything she performed was \"soul.\"

From her earliest recording sessions at Columbia, when she asked to sing \"Over the Rainbow,\" she defied category. The 1998 Grammys gave her a chance to demonstrate her range. Franklin performed \"Respect,\" then, with only a few minutes' notice, filled in for an ailing Luciano Pavarotti and drew rave reviews for her rendition of \"Nessun Dorma,\" a stirring aria for tenors from Puccini's \"Turandot.\"

\"I'm sure many people were surprised, but I'm not there to prove anything,\" Franklin told The Associated Press. \"Not necessary.\"

Fame never eclipsed Franklin's charitable works, or her loyalty to Detroit.

Franklin sang the national anthem at Super Bowl in her hometown in 2006, after grousing that Detroit's rich musical legacy was being snubbed when the Rolling Stones were chosen as halftime performers.

\"I didn't think there was enough (Detroit representation) by any means,\" she said. \"And it was my feeling, 'How dare you come to Detroit, a city of legends \u2014 musical legends, plural \u2014 and not ask one or two of them to participate?' That's not the way it should be.\"

Franklin did most of her extensive touring by bus after Redding's death in a 1967 plane crash, and a rough flight to Detroit in 1982 left her with a fear of flying that anti-anxiety tapes and classes couldn't help. She told Time in 1998 that the custom bus was a comfortable alternative: \"You can pull over, go to Red Lobster. You can't pull over at 35,000 feet.\"

She only released a few albums over the past two decades, including \"A Rose is Still a Rose,\" which featured songs by Sean \"Diddy\" Combs, Lauryn Hill and other contemporary artists, and \"So Damn Happy,\" for which Franklin wrote the gratified title ballad. Franklin's autobiography, \"Aretha: From These Roots,\" came out in 1999, when she was in her 50s. But she always made it clear that her story would continue.

\"Music is my thing, it's who I am. I'm in it for the long run,\" she told The Associated Press in 2008. \"I'll be around, singing, 'What you want, baby I got it.' Having fun all the way.\"

When Ring of Honor (ROH) wrestling star Christopher Daniels heard Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) were conceptualizing an independent show, he had a good feeling it would do well.

However, the 47-year-old veteran had no idea just how big All In would become, or how fast. The show sold out the more than 10,000-seat Sears Centre in less than a half hour. Demand led to the September 1 renegade event being available on Pay-Per-View, as well as streaming on Fite TV and ROH\u2019s HonorClub. Organizers even secured a television partner in WGN America to host a preshow Zero Hour.

\"Ring

Ring of Honor Star Tenille Dashwood on the New Chapter in Her Career & Her Life

'I feel revived and alive again with wrestling,' the former WWE star tells us.

\u201cThe day that the tickets went on sale and sold out so quickly, I feel like we all took a step back and said, \u2018Wow, that happened quicker than we expected,\u2019\u201d Daniels recalled. \u201cI think everyone knew that with the excitement around the Bucks and Cody and the way things are going for them right now, I think they knew it would be successful. How quickly it happened was such a pleasant surprise. It was a good feeling to know the support is out there for these guys and what they want to have happen.\u201d

The card for All In features top names from promotions including ROH, NWA, Lucha Underground, New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), Impact Wrestling and more. Daniels believes this show could have a long-term positive effect on the industry.

\u201cI think people are going to start to look at professional wrestling, gauge it more successful than they thought,\u201d he said. \u201cMaybe people will be more likely to take chances on it. Maybe television stations will be more likely to give wrestling companies opportunities. I think business-wise it sort of shows that the popularity of pro wrestling is higher than it has been in a long time. Maybe we\u2019ll see people wanting to risk more on professional wrestling and take more chances on it.\u201d

The last time a non-WWE or WCW show drew a house such as this in the United States can date back to 1993, which is around the time Daniels began his career. Then independent wrestling and the perception of it has changed drastically since then. Quality of talent, technology and increased accessibility have become primary factors.

Ring of Honor/Joe Defalco

The card for All In is jam-packed from top-to-bottom. Daniels\u2019 opponent that night is Arrow star Stephen Amell. The seeds for this unique match began in San Antonio when the actor and noted wrestling fan appeared, evening up the odds for the Bullet Club in a tag team contest. Amell ended up being sent crashing through a table by Daniels and his Addiction partner Frankie Kazarian. Daniels is approaching the match with as much enthusiasm as any other. Another day at the office.

\u201cIt is a different style match for me. It\u2019s a challenge,\u201d he said. \u201cI feel like I\u2019ve prided myself on being able to adapt to the strengths and weaknesses of any opponent I\u2019ve been able to face. Stephen in terms of wrestling specifically, he is very untrained. But he is an accomplished athlete and a fan growing up.

\"Holy

Holy Cowl! Ruby Rose Lands Batwoman Gig for the Arrowverse Crossover

The 'Orange is the New Black' alum will play Kate Kane, an out lesbian and street fighter snuffing out the city's criminals.

\u201cThat basically lends itself to an easier time for me than when WCW did it with Dennis Rodman and Karl Malone or Jay Leno. Stephen Amell is probably the best pure athlete and wrestling fan that has ever dabbled in professional wrestling. I challenge anyone to find someone better suited for it than him. I\u2019m going into this with a lot of expectations. I think it\u2019s going to surprise people how well it\u2019s going to go.\u201d

Amell is known for physicality on the Arrow set. At WWE SummerSlam in 2015, the Green Arrow turned a lot of eyes with a standout performance teaming with Neville against King Barrett and Rhodes, who was then Stardust.

\u201cI think what Stephen is game for and willing to try, it\u2019s probably a lot higher bar than people are going to expect,\u201d Daniels said. \u201cI\u2019ve been reading a lot of social media of people\u2019s expectations. I\u2019m pretty sure we\u2019re going to exceed anyone\u2019s preconceived notions of what this match is going to be.\u201d

\u201cStephen has shown he is isn\u2019t afraid to throw jabs on social media,\u201d he said. \u201cIt\u2019s nice this guy is on board a hundred percent. I feel the next the couple of weeks there is going to be a lot of story being told through our social media.\u201d

The former ROH champ believes being asked to participate in the match exemplifies a level of trust from not just the Bucks and Rhodes, but Stephen himself.

The hunky actor also teased that big crossover in the works for next season.

\u201cTo put that challenge out there and express that desire to work with me, I take that very seriously,\u201d Daniels said. \u201cI\u2019m going to do everything on my end to make this match stand out. On a card that already has a lot of great matches announced and great talent, I\u2019m going to do my best to make my match stand out among them. It\u2019s a high bar to meet. I\u2019m sure Stephen and I are going to do it.\u201d

Daniels is happy to see the growth of wrestling in 2018, especially Ring of Honor. The promotion recently sold old its debut in Madison Square Garden next April, a collaboration with NJPW titled G1 Supercard. The SoCal Uncensored member believes the success of All In certainly helped in seeing the market that is out there for wrestling outside of WWE.

\u201cThere are new doors being opened every day for Ring of Honor and beyond,\u201d Daniels said. \u201cThat inspires me to try to stay at that top level so when these opportunities arise my name is on the short list to be a part of it all. A year ago, we had no idea that Madison Square Garden was going to be an opportunity. Do I want to be a name on that roster sheet for it? Well, absolutely.

\u201cA year-and-a-half ago All In wasn\u2019t a possibility. When it came around, I absolutely wanted to be part of that show and history like that. All of these historic events that are coming up and events coming up in the future that nobody has even contemplated.

He shares what his WWE has been like so far, how he developed a persona, what it's like having The Rock as a fan.

\"When they come around, I want to be a part of it. I want to be in the mix. It\u2019s incumbent on me then to stay at that top level and continue to hone my craft and be the best that I can be, so when the opportunities come up, the idea of Christopher Daniels being a part of it is a sure thing.\u201d

All In airs live 7/6c on September 1 via traditional PPV, Fite TV and ROH\u2019s HonorClub. The preshow Zero Hour broadcasts 6/5c on WGN America.

The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, has passed away.

The 76-year-old music icon died surrounded by her family at her home in Detroit after a battle with pancreatic cancer, the singer's long-time publicist Gwendolyn Quinn has confirmed.

A statement by the 'Respect' hitmaker's family, revealing the cause of death, read: \"Franklin's official cause of death was due to advance pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type, which was confirmed by Franklin's oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute\" in Detroit.\"

On their great loss, they added: \"In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family.\"

In the days before her passing, Aretha's publicist had stated that the \"love and support\" the music icon and her family had received from fans when news of her serious illness came out had been a great comfort to her and her family.

Gwendolyn said: \"Aretha Franklin has been the matriarch of the Franklin family since the passing of all of her siblings. The love she has for her family is above reproach and was evident in the warm smiles she was able to share with her nephew during his very brief visit two weeks ago. She is seriously ill and surrounded by family members who appreciate the outpouring of love and support they have received.\"

Aretha - whose three siblings all died of cancer - had battled ill health over the last few years and in 2011, denied she was suffering from pancreatic cancer, though she later admitted she'd had a tumour removed.

The 'Think' singer - who was born in Memphis but raised in Detroit from the age of five - enjoyed a career packed with highlights and unique achievements since her first album was released back in 1956.

She achieved more than 20 number one singles in the US and won the Grammy for Best R&B Vocal Performance eight years in a row - from 1968 to 1975. In total she accumulated 18 Grammys.

In 1987, she was the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Franklin - who was married twice, first to her manager Ted White and then to actor Glynn Turman - was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush in 2005.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Aretha Franklin, the undisputed \"Queen of Soul\" who sang with matchless style on such classics as \"Think,\" ''I Say a Little Prayer\" and her signature song, \"Respect,\" and stood as a cultural icon around the globe, has died at age 76 from pancreatic cancer.

Publicist Gwendolyn Quinn tells The Associated Press through a family statement that Franklin died Thursday at 9:50 a.m. at her home in Detroit. The statement said \"Franklin's official cause of death was due to advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type, which was confirmed by Franklin's oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute\" in Detroit.

The family added: \"In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family. The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins knew no bounds.\"

The statement continued:

\"We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world. Thank you for your compassion and prayers. We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on. As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.\"

Funeral arrangements will be announced in the coming days.

Franklin, who had battled undisclosed health issues in recent years, had in 2017 announced her retirement from touring.

A professional singer and accomplished pianist by her late teens, a superstar by her mid-20s, Franklin had long ago settled any arguments over who was the greatest popular vocalist of her time. Her gifts, natural and acquired, were a multi-octave mezzo-soprano, gospel passion and training worthy of a preacher's daughter, taste sophisticated and eccentric, and the courage to channel private pain into liberating song.

She recorded hundreds of tracks and had dozens of hits over the span of a half century, including 20 that reached No. 1 on the R&B charts. But her reputation was defined by an extraordinary run of top 10 smashes in the late 1960s, from the morning-after bliss of \"(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,\" to the wised-up \"Chain of Fools\" to her unstoppable call for \"Respect.\"

Her records sold millions of copies and the music industry couldn't honor her enough. Franklin won 18 Grammy awards. In 1987, she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Clive Davis, the music mogul who brought her to Arista Records and helped revive her career in the 1980s, said he was \"devastated\" by her death.

\"She was truly one of a kind. She was more than the Queen of Soul. She was a national treasure to be cherished by every generation throughout the world,\" he said in a statement. \"Apart from our long professional relationship, Aretha was my friend. Her loss is deeply profound and my heart is full of sadness.\"

Fellow singers bowed to her eminence and political and civic leaders treated her as a peer. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was a longtime friend, and she sang at the dedication of King's memorial, in 2011. She performed at the inaugurations of Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, and at the funeral for civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks. Clinton gave Franklin the National Medal of Arts. President George W. Bush awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in 2005.

Franklin's best-known appearance with a president was in January 2009, when she sang \"My Country 'tis of Thee\" at Barack Obama's inauguration. She wore a gray felt hat with a huge, Swarovski rhinestone-bordered bow that became an Internet sensation and even had its own website. In 2015, she brought Obama and others to tears with a triumphant performance of \"Natural Woman\" at a Kennedy Center tribute to the song's co-writer, Carole King.

Franklin endured the exhausting grind of celebrity and personal troubles dating back to childhood. She was married from 1961 to 1969 to her manager, Ted White, and their battles are widely believed to have inspired her performances on several songs, including \"(Sweet Sweet Baby) Since You've Been Gone,\" ''Think\" and her heartbreaking ballad of despair, \"Ain't No Way.\" The mother of two sons by age 16 (she later had two more), she was often in turmoil as she struggled with her weight, family problems and financial predicaments. Her best known producer, Jerry Wexler, nicknamed her \"Our Lady of Mysterious Sorrows.\"

Franklin married actor Glynn Turman in 1978 in Los Angeles but returned to her hometown of Detroit the following year after her father was shot by burglars and left semi-comatose until his death in 1984. She and Turman divorced that year.

Despite growing up in Detroit, and having Smokey Robinson as a childhood friend, Franklin never recorded for Motown Records; stints with Columbia and Arista were sandwiched around her prime years with Atlantic Records. But it was at Detroit's New Bethel Baptist Church, where her father was pastor, that Franklin learned the gospel fundamentals that would make her a soul institution.

Aretha Louise Franklin was born March 25, 1942, in Memphis, Tennessee. The Rev. C.L. Franklin soon moved his family to Buffalo, New York, then to Detroit, where the Franklins settled after the marriage of Aretha's parents collapsed and her mother (and reputed sound-alike) Barbara returned to Buffalo.

C.L. Franklin was among the most prominent Baptist ministers of his time. He recorded dozens of albums of sermons and music and knew such gospel stars as Marion Williams and Clara Ward, who mentored Aretha and her sisters Carolyn and Erma. (Both sisters sang on Aretha's records, and Carolyn also wrote \"Ain't No Way\" and other songs for Aretha). Music was the family business and performers from Sam Cooke to Lou Rawls were guests at the Franklin house. In the living room, the shy young Aretha awed friends with her playing on the grand piano.

Franklin occasionally performed at New Bethel Baptist throughout her career; her 1987 gospel album \"One Lord One Faith One Baptism\" was recorded live at the church.

Her most acclaimed gospel recording came in 1972 with the Grammy-winning album \"Amazing Grace,\" which was recorded live at New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in South Central Los Angeles and featured gospel legend James Cleveland, along with her own father (Mick Jagger was one of the celebrities in the audience). It became one of of the best-selling gospel albums ever.

The piano she began learning at age 8 became a jazzy component of much of her work, including arranging as well as songwriting. \"If I'm writing and I'm producing and singing, too, you get more of me that way, rather than having four or five different people working on one song,\" Franklin told The Detroit News in 2003.

Franklin was in her early teens when she began touring with her father, and she released a gospel album in 1956 through J-V-B Records. Four years later, she signed with Columbia Records producer John Hammond, who called Franklin the most exciting singer he had heard since a vocalist he promoted decades earlier, Billie Holiday. Franklin knew Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr. and considered joining his label, but decided it was just a local company at the time.

Franklin recorded several albums for Columbia Records over the next six years. She had a handful of minor hits, including \"Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With a Dixie Melody\" and \"Runnin' Out of Fools,\" but never quite caught on as the label tried to fit into her a variety of styles, from jazz and show songs to such pop numbers as \"Mockingbird.\" Franklin jumped to Atlantic Records when her contract ran out, in 1966.

\"But the years at Columbia also taught her several important things,\" critic Russell Gersten later wrote. \"She worked hard at controlling and modulating her phrasing, giving her a discipline that most other soul singers lacked. She also developed a versatility with mainstream music that gave her later albums a breadth that was lacking on Motown LPs from the same period.

\"Most important, she learned what she didn't like: to do what she was told to do.\"

At Atlantic, Wexler teamed her with veteran R&B musicians from Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, and the result was a tougher, soulful sound, with call-and-response vocals and Franklin's gospel-style piano, which anchored \"I Say a Little Prayer,\" ''Natural Woman\" and others.

Of Franklin's dozens of hits, none was linked more firmly to her than the funky, horn-led march \"Respect\" and its spelled out demand for \"R-E-S-P-E-C-T.\"

Writing in Rolling Stone magazine in 2004, Wexler said: \"It was an appeal for dignity combined with a blatant lubricity. There are songs that are a call to action. There are love songs. There are sex songs. But it's hard to think of another song where all those elements are combined.\"

Franklin had decided she wanted to \"embellish\" the R&B song written by Otis Redding, whose version had been a modest hit in 1965, Wexler said.

\"When she walked into the studio, it was already worked out in her head,\" the producer wrote. \"Otis came up to my office right before 'Respect' was released, and I played him the tape. He said, 'She done took my song.' He said it benignly and ruefully. He knew the identity of the song was slipping away from him to her.\"

In a 2004 interview with the St. Petersburg (Florida) Times, Franklin was asked whether she sensed in the '60s that she was helping change popular music.

\"Somewhat, certainly with 'Respect,' that was a battle cry for freedom and many people of many ethnicities took pride in that word,\" she answered. \"It was meaningful to all of us.\"

In 1968, Franklin was pictured on the cover of Time magazine and had more than 10 Top 20 hits in 1967 and 1968. At a time of rebellion and division, Franklin's records were a musical union of the church and the secular, man and woman, black and white, North and South, East and West. They were produced and engineered by New Yorkers Wexler and Tom Dowd, arranged by Turkish-born Arif Mardin and backed by an interracial assembly of top session musicians based mostly in Alabama.

Her popularity faded during the 1970s despite such hits as the funky \"Rock Steady\" and such acclaimed albums as the intimate \"Spirit in the Dark.\" But her career was revived in 1980 with a cameo appearance in the smash movie \"The Blues Brothers\" and her switch to Arista Records. Franklin collaborated with such pop and soul artists as Luther Vandross, Elton John, Whitney Houston and George Michael, with whom she recorded a No. 1 single, \"I Knew You Were Waiting (for Me).\" Her 1985 album \"Who's Zoomin' Who\" received some of her best reviews and included such hits as the title track and \"Freeway of Love.\"

Critics consistently praised Franklin's singing but sometimes questioned her material; she covered songs by Stephen Sondheim, Bread, the Doobie Brothers. For Aretha, anything she performed was \"soul.\"

From her earliest recording sessions at Columbia, when she asked to sing \"Over the Rainbow,\" she defied category. The 1998 Grammys gave her a chance to demonstrate her range. Franklin performed \"Respect,\" then, with only a few minutes' notice, filled in for an ailing Luciano Pavarotti and drew rave reviews for her rendition of \"Nessun Dorma,\" a stirring aria for tenors from Puccini's \"Turandot.\"

\"I'm sure many people were surprised, but I'm not there to prove anything,\" Franklin told The Associated Press. \"Not necessary.\"

Fame never eclipsed Franklin's charitable works, or her loyalty to Detroit.

Franklin sang the national anthem at Super Bowl in her hometown in 2006, after grousing that Detroit's rich musical legacy was being snubbed when the Rolling Stones were chosen as halftime performers.

\"I didn't think there was enough (Detroit representation) by any means,\" she said. \"And it was my feeling, 'How dare you come to Detroit, a city of legends \u2014 musical legends, plural \u2014 and not ask one or two of them to participate?' That's not the way it should be.\"

Franklin did most of her extensive touring by bus after Redding's death in a 1967 plane crash, and a rough flight to Detroit in 1982 left her with a fear of flying that anti-anxiety tapes and classes couldn't help. She told Time in 1998 that the custom bus was a comfortable alternative: \"You can pull over, go to Red Lobster. You can't pull over at 35,000 feet.\"

She only released a few albums over the past two decades, including \"A Rose is Still a Rose,\" which featured songs by Sean \"Diddy\" Combs, Lauryn Hill and other contemporary artists, and \"So Damn Happy,\" for which Franklin wrote the gratified title ballad. Franklin's autobiography, \"Aretha: From These Roots,\" came out in 1999, when she was in her 50s. But she always made it clear that her story would continue.

\"Music is my thing, it's who I am. I'm in it for the long run,\" she told The Associated Press in 2008. \"I'll be around, singing, 'What you want, baby I got it.' Having fun all the way.\"

\"STRANGE

This is one strange \u2014 but worthwhile \u2014 ride. Originally developed for AMC, Strange Angel landed on CBS All Access this summer as the first original title not based on a past franchise.

Jack Reynor, Rupert Friend, and Bella Heathcote star in the true story of Jack Parsons, a pioneering 1930s amateur rocketeer who also got involved in Aleister Crowley\u2019s infamous sex cult.

With the addition of the finale on August 16, the drama\u2019s entire season will be streaming, so we got show creator Mark Heyman and executive producer David DiGilio to blast off and plead their case for bingeing.

7 New TV Networks and Where to Find Them

Some like Apple and Disney\u2019s streaming services are gaining buzz before they've even been named!

I have time to watch one more show. Why should it be yours?

Mark Heyman: This show has the most sex cults for your buck.

David DiGilio: The rocketry is pretty cool too.

Fill in the blank: If you like _____, you\u2019ll like our show.

Heyman: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Wild Wild Country.

What\u2019s a good alternate title for Strange Angel?

Heyman: It used to be called Marvel, which was Jack Parsons\u2019s real first name and describes him and the show marveling at rocketry and other realms. A fitting title, but it also happened to be the name of the world\u2019s largest entertainment company.

Jack Reynor as Jack Parsons and Rupert Friend as Ernest Donovan in Strange Angel.

Give us an equation for Strange Angel.
