It now appears that the several nights of prayer vigil dedicated to saving Aretha Franklin have not quite worked.
Despite millions of prayers and good thoughts, the wonderfully talented American singer has still reached the end of her life.
Local fan, Peter Thape attended the vigil, holding a candle, and generally getting into the whole saving Aretha spirit.
‘Turns out that 100% of people now die; probably done my money there,’ said Thape.
‘I feel that God’s message might have been to start selling candles,’ added Thape.
