The legendary soul singer tells the Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/2wijMOV ) that she is moving from her longtime home in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

She also wants to open a small club that she plans to call Aretha’s. The 75-year-old says she’d like to sing at the club “from time to time” and host performers that are favorites of Detroit residents.

The Queen of Soul announced her retirement this year and said 2017 would be her last year of doing concerts. She plans to continue recording and is working to complete a new album.
