DETROIT (AP) Aretha Franklin did more than sing "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" at President Barack Obama's inauguration. She also came bearing gifts.

Her spokeswoman, Gwendolyn Quinn, says Franklin gave Obama a collection of 17 sermons by her late father, prominent Detroit minister the Rev. C.L. Franklin.

Quinn says the 66-year-old singer also gave Obama a biography of her father and a Bible "engraved with a personal message."

Franklin gave first lady Michelle Obama a gold brooch with diamonds. Franklin's 15-year-old grandson, Jordan Franklin, gave Obama daughters Malia and Sasha a collection of gospel/Christian hip-hop music.
