DETROIT (CelebrityAccess) Aretha Franklin may have been an inspiration to a generation of singers, but she will also be remembered for her inseparable connection to the civil rights movement.

“She not only provided the soundtrack for the civil rights movement, Aretha’s music transcended race, nationality and religion and helped people from all backgrounds to recognize what they had in common,” longtime civil rights leader the Rev. Joseph E. Lowery told the Associated Press.
