DETROIT (AP) - Detroit’s Queen of Soul knows how to throw a Christmas party, and she welcomed in the holiday with glitter, a jazzy musical backdrop and a finale of “Silent Night” with the Four Tops.

Aretha Franklin held her annual Christmas party on Friday at the Detroit Athletic Club, greeting guests in a teal blue gown accented with a silver sequined bodice.

The Detroit News reports (http://bit.ly/tPkXO9 ) that Franklin exchanged gifts with family and friends as Ursula Walker, Buddy Budson, Marian Hayden and Gayelynn McKinney played jazz in the background.

During a meal of filet mignon and salmon, guests were entertained by performances by Gwen & Charles Scales and Franklin’s son Eddie Franklin, who sang “Some Enchanted Evening.”
