R-E-S-P-E-C-T Aretha rocks!

ARETHA Franklin threw a party on Friday for dozens of people displaced by hurricane Katrina, sharing soul food and memories of New Orleans with them at a Detroit hotel.

About 40 people from the US Gulf Coast are staying at the hotel.

Franklin, who lives nearby, said she wanted to do her part to help them.

"It's the right thing to do," said Franklin, who was planning another dinner at the hotel last night.
