The Flint, Michigan water crisis has Detroit native Aretha Franklin offering R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the people.
R&B superstar Aretha is reserving enough rooms to house up to 50 of the city’s residents in the Southfield Holiday Inn in nearby Detroit, with the Coney Island restaurant providing catering.

Flint residents who wish to apply for the accommodations will go through a pre-screening at Detroit’s the New Bethel Baptist Church where Aretha’s father used to minister.
