Former US President Barack Obama has taken to his Twitter page to mourn legendary singer Aretha Franklin.

Sharing series photos with the late singer, he wrote: ‘Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade—our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect. May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace.’
