Aretha Franklin gets honorary Harvard degree
Soul legend Aretha Franklin has received an honorary degree from Harvard University.
The 72-year-old diva gave a rousing rendition of the US national anthem before receiving the honour at the university's annual commencement ceremony.
University Provost Alan M Garber introduced her as "her regal highness, the Queen of Soul".
Franklin's classic hits include Respect, Chain Of Fools and Think.
She has won 18 Grammy Awards and was the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in 1987.
