On August 16, Aretha Franklin, universally recognized as the “Queen of Soul,” died after a long battle with cancer. She was 76. In honor of her contribution to popular music, SiriusXM transformed Soul Town (Ch. 49) into The Aretha Franklin Tribute Channel, featuring music from her iconic career as well as archival interviews and tributes from fans, friends, and family.

By popular demand, the channel has been extended through August 31 on channel 49.
