Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson -- two of Aretha Franklin's oldest friends -- took to the airwaves to celebrate her life and work. Aretha Franklin, the "Queen Of Soul," died on August 16th at age 76 near her home in Detroit from a form on pancreatic cancer.

Smokey Robinson spoke about his childhood friend, telling CBS This Morning how they met back in Detroit during the late-1940's: "We became friends because she and her family moved to Detroit when I was eight-years-old, really. And, y'know how kids are, her brother Cecil, who was my lifelong ace boon coon (laughter) until he passed, y'know, came around to just play with the guys in the neighborhood. And we went around to see his new house. We're walking through the house and I hear this little voice and a piano playing somewhere in this room. And this voice comin' -- and I peak in and there's Aretha sittin' at the piano, playing and singing -- almost like she did as an adult, but she was probably only about five-years-old. But that's how I first met her." at Number Seven with a total of 35,000 new units sold.
