The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is following closely on the heels of Patti LaBelle‘s sweet potato pies success.

In addition to donating food and overnight hotel stays for 25-50 people in Flint, Michigan, Franklin is launching her own line of food that will soon be available in grocery stores near you.

Evrod Cassimy, friend of the blog and Morning Anchor of Local 4 News Today in Detroit, spoke with Ms. Franklin exclusively by phone.

When Cassimy asked Ms. Franklin if she tasted one of LaBelle’s sweet potato pies, she responded, “No, I haven’t, but Ms. Patti’s gonna have to move that pie to the side!”

Franklin plans to offer consumers more than just high calorie, high sugar pies. She’s offering high protein, low fat foods to make your taste buds sing and your heart healthy.
