Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin held a lavish party at a hotel in Detroit, Michigan, last week October 21-22 for survivors of Hurricane Katrina. There are about 40 people from the hurricane-devastated Gulf Coast making their home at Hawthorn Suites in Southfield.

Thus, Franklin who lives in nearby Bloomfield Hills, says she wanted to do her part by hosting the night's party. "It's the right thing to do. Hopefully some of the other performers in town will follow suit," she remarks.

There Franklin talked with some of the refugees, posed for snapshots and sang a song titled "Jesus is Waiting" to help welcome them. She then gathering with them for dinner. What a big-hearted star.
