DETROIT -- The Queen of Soul can throw a party, and she clearly gets a kick over the worldwide attention over her famous gray felt Inaugural Hat.

To celebrate her 67 years on the planet, Franklin threw a party for 200 friends at Seldom Blues tonight and the centerpiece was a cake that was a replica of her stylish gray-bowed chapeau, made out of yellow cake with buttercream frosting and fresh raspberries.

Guests dined on chef Jerry Nottage's famed gumbo, as well as on meat loaf prepared from one of Franklin's own recipes
