A Happy Birthday to the Queen of Soul who turned 69 yesterday! A lavish party was held in her honor in New York City late Friday night – where Bette Midler, Smokey Robinson and Tony Bennett topped the guest list – revelers joined Dennis Edwards of The Temptations in wishing her well with a personalized version of "My Girl."

It went a little something like this: "I guess … you'll say … what can make me feel this way …. Aretha, Aretha, Aretha ..." And then the woman of the hour took the mic.

As guests screamed and applauded, the slimmed-down Franklin sang with Edwards for the delighted crowd, and then showed off some dance moves while blowing out the candles on her two-tier, flower-covered birthday cake. The song for that part of the evening? "Respect," of course.
