Aretha Franklin’s legacy will continue to live on forever, but this time she will be honored at a Detroit museum.

The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History has received approval from Franklin’s estate for a tribute titled, “Think: A Tribute to the Queen of Soul.” It reportedly will feature a variety of items belonging to the late singer, such as clothing, shoes, photographs and videos. The museum will also include a copy of a 1956 vinyl of “Never Grow Old” by “Aretha Franklin, Daughter of Rev. C.L. Franklin.” This vinyl is the very first recording ever released by Franklin.

This museum was also the location of Franklin’s public display after her passing, to pay their final respects.

The exhibit will begin today and will end on January 21st, 2019.
