Aretha Franklin Has A Post Office Named After Her In Detroit

This is such an honor to the Queen of Soul, the late Aretha Franklin. 

It has been reported, that a post office will be renamed after Ms. Franklin in Detroit. 

On Monday, October 5th, the post office was renamed the “Aretha Franklin Post Office Building.” Reports say that the “Respect” singer posthumously received this honor due to her “efforts made in Washington.”

Michigan Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence, who was a friend of Franklin, introduced the bill requesting to have the name change last year which was passed through Congress and signed by then-President, Donald Trump. 

“Her legacy lives on in her music, in her family. But we have added to that list of her legacy: A post office with her name on it,” Lawrence said in a recent interview. 

The post office is located five miles east of downtown Detroit and close to the amphitheater which is also named after the singer.
