Already crying at the choir singing #arethashomegoing
This photo of Louis Farrakhan Sr., Rev Al, Rev Jackson and Bill Clinton is breathtaking. #ArethaHomegoing
They said Bill Clinton walked in and got a standing ovation. Years later the black community still loves Bill. Now imagine how we will look at the clown 🤡 sitting in the Oval Office now?
Have y’all heard Whitney’s version of ‘I Love The Lord’ from the Preacher’s Wife Soundtrack? Divine! #AreathaHomegoing
Aretha Franklin was a mother of four children, Ted White Jr., Kecalf Cunningham, Clarence Franklin, and Edward Franklin. Thinking of them and the entire Franklin family during this time.❤️

You know every time I see Clive Davis I think of the night Whitney died. And how they kept the party going while her body was still in the hotel. So wrong. 😯

Rev Jaspers comments about the black community. Wow I can’t believe he’s saying. #ArethaHomegoing
