DETROIT (AP) – Aretha Franklin was given a little RESPECT when a post office in her hometown of Detroit was named after the late singer. Members of Franklin’s family, as well as postal workers and elected officials, visited the former Fox Creek Post Office to celebrate the name change in honor of the Queen of Soul. The post office is about five miles east of downtown and not far from a concert amphitheater on the Detroit River, also named after Franklin. It is now known as the “Aretha Franklin Post Office Building”. Franklin died at her Detroit home in 2018, aged 76.
