Aretha Franklin - The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is pictured above after taking in dinner with music mogul Clive Davis last evening (3.24) in celebration of her birthday today (3.25). Aretha Franklin is reportedly planning a huge birthday bash for her 69th birthday today (3. 25). Aretha Franklin's publicist confirmed that Aretha's will attend the evening show of Earl Jame Jones and Vanessa Redgrave on Broadway in Driving Miss Daisy. But the huge celebration comes later when Aretha's invited 100 of her closest friends according to New York Daily News.

The National Enquirer has more details saying,

"Aretha's not saying it, but she knows this could very well be her last birthday celebration, so she's going all out. She may be recovering from her illness, but she's still a diva so she's planning every detail down to the napkins - she's making sure this party will be one to remember."

"Aretha isn't calling this her swan song, but she wants to be remembered, and what better way to go out than with a huge bash!" Oprah Winfrey who was Reportedly "Raging Mad" with Aretha for snubbing her for Wendy Williams is reportedly on the guest list!

Happy Birthday To Aretha Franklin!
