Aretha Franklin is a badass, ladies. Not only is she the queen of soul, but she’s now reinforcing the notion that it’s never too late for love. At 69, the singer is set to tie the knot with her longtime “friend” William ‘Willie’ Wilkerson.

This will be her third wedding, and she’s apparently talking about having it in Miami, and considering legendary dress designer Vera Wang to make the gown. Respect, Aretha. Respect.
