Known around the world by her first name and as the reigning Queen of Soul, 19-time Grammy winner Aretha Franklin (Respect, Chain of Fools) is one of the most influential and important voices in the history of American music.
In 2009, Franklin was named the No. 1 Vocalist of All Time by Rolling Stone magazine for her repertoire, which spans pop, soul, jazz, rock, blues and gospel and includes hits like (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman and I Say a Little Prayer. With her ever-distinctive, soulful, to-the-bone vocal style, she has graced music charts for over five decades and her live performances have touched the hearts of tens of millions since she began her musical journey in Detroit as a singing child prodigy.
