Aretha Franklin proves that age is nothing but a number. The Queen of Soul was spotted heading out in New York City to celebrate her 72nd birthday with Hollywood'ÂÂs royalty. Guests at Aretha's party included Denzel Washington and the legendary Clive Davis. Rumor has it that Aretha wished for a record deal for her granddaughter, Victorie, and son, Kecalf. We're making a wish for her stunning metallic Classic Chanel Flap Bag.
