The billionaire herself, Oprah Winfrey could very possibly be the first woman president of the United States of America as well as the first BLACK woman president.

Oprah Winfrey is loved by billions around the world and if Donald Trump can win, it wouldn’t be a shoe and a leg for Oprah Winfrey to win.

After Oprah’s Golden Globe’s speech(click HERE if you missed that), it seems as though ‘the people’ had already nominated Winfrey.

Sources close to Winfrey says, she is seriously considering a political future.

Two of Oprah’s close friends revealed that she’s “actively thinking” about running for president in 2020, according to CNN.

The two friends, who requested anonymity in order to speak freely, talked in the wake of Winfrey’s extraordinary speech at the Golden Globes Sunday night, which spurred chatter about a 2020 run. Some of Winfrey’s confidants have been privately urging her to run, the sources said. One of the sources said these conversations date back several months. The person emphasized that Winfrey has not made up her mind about running. A representative for Winfrey did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Aretha Franklin, ‘The Queen of Soul,’ dies at age 76

Published

on

  • Aretha Franklin, known famously as “The Queen of Soul,” has died at age 76.

Aretha passed away in her Detroit home where she was under hospice care. She’d been in failing health for many months and she was down to 86 pounds. One source told us he was informed more than a week ago that Aretha could go at any time, according to TMZ.

Aretha’s career is just incredible. Born in Memphis in 1942, her family eventually relocated to Detroit where she began singing in her father’s church. She was such a powerhouse gospel singer, she landed a Columbia record deal in the early ’60s.

Her string of chart-topping hits began with her Atlantic Records deal in 1967.

Aretha’s achievements in the late ’60s were remarkable for any artist, but especially so for a black woman in the midst of the Civil Rights movement. She held the record for the most entries on the Hot 100 list of any female artist for nearly 40 years, only to be dethroned in 2017 by Nicki Minaj.

She won 18 Grammys and was the first woman ever inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

Aretha delivered a powerful rendition of “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” — while wearing that unforgettable hat — at Barack Obama‘s 2009 inauguration.

Throughout her career, Aretha was known for delivering incredible one-off live performances, including at the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors show where she sang ‘Natural Woman’ in honor of the song’s co-writer, Carole King.

The Queen of Soul was 76. She is survived by her 4 sons.

She was surrounded by friends and family when she passed.

She had appeared incredibly frail in recent years, and rarely performed live. Her most recent appearance was last November for Elton John‘s AMFAR event.

RIP
