The Queen of Soul is Getting MARRIED

by on January 2, 2012

Three days after the King of Basketball got engaged, the Queen of Soul has decided to throw her hat into the ring…..yes, she’s 69 but you better R.E.S.P.E.C.T. her desire for love at such a wise age, lol. Here is PEOPLE Magazine with the story:

The Queen of Soul will soon have a king.

Aretha Franklin and her “forever friend” William ‘Willie’ Wilkerson are engaged to be married, her rep tells PEOPLE.

The iconic singer, 69, and Wilkerson are discussing tying the knot on Miami Beach, with an exclusive reception aboard a private yacht.

And for her dress?

“Ms. Franklin is considering Donna Karan, Valentino and the queen of wedding dresses, Vera Wang, to design her gown,” says her rep.

Franklin lost 85 pounds last year after a health scare and told PEOPLE, “I feel fabulous.”

Adds Franklin herself of the upcoming nuptials: “We’re looking at June or July for our date and no, I’m not pregnant, LOL!”

Congrats Your Majesty 🙂
