Aretha Franklin will get some major R-E-S-P-E-C-T in Cleveland.

The Queen of Soul has been chosen as the honoree for the 16th annual American Music Masters series, presented by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Case Western Reserve University.

“I’m thrilled and delighted to be honored,” Franklin said in a statement. “I’m really looking forward to being there.”

The salute will culminate with a tribute concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, at PlayhouseSquare’s State Theatre. Franklin will attend to accept her American Music Masters award, although she is not scheduled to perform.
