Aretha Franklin
Aretha Franklin was awarded an honorary doctorate from Princeton University yesterday for her contributions to music and culture at large.

Stephen Oxman, a trustee and university orator, said in his induction speech that Franklin’s “impeccably bold and fearless” style took fans on a “journey to the depths of her soul.” He also worked in as many song titles as possible, saying, “With her singular Amazing Grace, she continues to traverse musical bridges over troubled water, and by reminding 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.”

Aretha Franklin was one of six honorees at Princeton University yesterday. All hail the Queen!
