An icon of 20th and 21st century music, the voice of the civil rights movement, and the undisputed Queen of Soul—there is only one Aretha Franklin. In her incredible six-decade career, Aretha evolved from teenage gospel star to reigning pop and R&B diva, recording classics like “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “Chain Of Fools”, “Think” (lyrics by Aretha Franklin), definitive versions of the songs “Respect” and “I Say a Little Prayer”, and global hits like “Freeway Of Love,” “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)”, and “A Rose Is Still A Rose.”

Altogether, 112 of her singles reached the charts, with 20 No. 1 R&B singles, the most ever by a female artist. She won 18 Grammy Awards (including the first eight trophies for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance) and, out of recognition for her for indelible contribution to American music and culture, received both the Presidential Medal Of Freedom and a Pulitzer Prize.

Remember, this collection just scratches the surface of her recorded output. If you have even a passing interest in great music, not just soul, I urge you to go on a streaming service like Spotify or Amazon Music and explore. She could sing the phone book and make it memorable. Miss you, Aretha.

Man listen, when I was a young girl, teenager, my mom had her albums that I would play over and over because of her voice. Then, when I became an adult and listened to the words,
man😍🥰 I fell hard hard!!! Whenever I wanted to feel my emotions, I’d play her albums and sing my heart out and cry my eyes out! My kids would go running🏃🏾🏃🏾 Now my daughter does the same thing. And my one son is an Aretha super fan! I’m jamming to my fav girl! Cant wait to see her movie! RIH 😇🙏🏾 REE😍
After watching "Respect", I now deeply understand her songs. I love how she used her voice to empower women. Such a great artist. Respect.

Un ícono de la música de los siglos XX y XXI, la voz del movimiento por los derechos civiles y la indiscutible Reina del Soul: solo hay una Aretha Franklin. En su increíble carrera de seis décadas, Aretha evolucionó de estrella del gospel adolescente a diva reinante del pop y el R&B, grabando clásicos como "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman", "Chain Of Fools", "Think" (letra de Aretha Franklin), versiones definitivas de las canciones "Respect" y "I Say a Little Prayer", y éxitos mundiales como "Freeway Of Love", "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)" y "A Rose Is Still A Rose .

LOVE,Love, love me some Aretha. So charming, beautiful & a voice like NO other.....My Mother played her songs since I was born, so I knew them ALL by ❤️. Playing Aretha after my Mom suffered over 6 Strokes allowed her regain LIFE structure. Thank U Aretha - your Family & the LOVE of Music.

N Auz:
My mom introduced this classic rock n soul groove from Queen Aretha who was like an aunt or cousin who visited our home or went on drives in our family car when her songscame on. Great song from a great artist whose vocal style is the personification of womanly power. There are few songs I have heard that have both a rock drive and blues grittiness married to gospel infused, deep soul. This is one of those gems. Love you cousin Aretha always.

Ms, Aretha Franklin an Original! Singing in the Heavens above! She earned the Title of Queen of Soul. We love you Ms. Franklin. Thank you for the memories. I’ve listened to her songs since childhood! Had a record collection. Every Saturday morning we played her records . I’m 70 s years young. No one comes close to her talent. Notice, I said records. That’s old technology but was still Enjoyable.
Catherine Frye
Catherine Frye:
I have followed Aretha Franklin music for many years. I have all of her hit songs! I love her and her music. She is definitely the Queen of soul! RIP MY BEAUTIFUL QUEEN. ❤❤❤
One of my all-time favorite performers. RESPECT is her best song, I believe. The great Otis Redding wrote that classic song, and his own version is also wonderful.

Dina Prowell
Dina Prowell:
We never tryly know and understand what our Queen went through. I daw the movie and I was sad about the abuse and being pregnant at such a young age. She definantly told her story through her beautiful songs. I grew up listening to her music. Never paid much attention to the lyrics until now. RIP Aretha the chains has been broken and you are free now.

Michael Sackett:
The first time I heard her singing, I was just 12 , the song was " Chain of Fools". I was just blown away, entranced and amazed. It truly gave me a chill, a for real chill. I had never experienced such a thrill, with even The Beatles. I remember the entire incident vividly , truly a magical moment in my life. I never heard her slip or falter on any song and I have listened to as many albums as my paper route money would let me afford at that time It is now 55 years later and my love for her talent has never changed. I feel the need to give mention to the fact that she always had some of the very best background singers and the most talented musicians I miss her dearly and am grateful for this compilation, playing this was a sweet walk through the past. THX; CDXX

Johnnie Mass
Johnnie Mass:
Aretha Franklin The QUEEN of SOUL when I hear music period its so invigorating. When I heard her sing You're All I Need To Get By I gets chills, now I do like Marvin and Tammi version ut I must say Aretha takes it to another level. Also Ain't No Way; Until You Come Back; Angel ; Do 't Play That Song. I Understand they doing the best they can In getting Jennifer and Cynthia to play Aretha but no one can replace the real thing like my man Marvin sing Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing. Happy Birthday on tomorrow for Ms. ARETHA FRANKLIN.
Randolph Sykes
Randolph Sykes:
Enjoyed the movie Respect. Jennifer did a great job as well as the other cast members. I will see it again and again. aAretha was my favorite artist of all time. I had just graduated high school in 1967 and have been a fan all these years. She was also one of my Honorary Delta sorority sisters.

My favorite? Chain of Fools. I was mesmerized the first time I heard it in '67. Love the bass, the harmonies, the soulful backup voices, and, of course, Aretha's masterful lead. I still have to stop and take this song in whenever I hear it.

Dr. Kim:
Ree Ree with the Rah Rah! I love her voice, phrasing and the way she can work a song! She can even hum better than some vocalist sing. She was a true genius. She could write, arrange, produce and orchestrate. She could deliver a song in a unique way. No wonder very few attempted to sing her songs while she was here. She made it seem so easy. But she's hard to imitate. Undisputed Queen of Soul! RIP!

Lynn Macpherson:
Recently watched "Respect" and it left me feeling a mixture of pain, sorrow, awe & joy. I honestly had no idea that this wonderful woman had endured quite so much heartache in her life, I'm just glad that in spite of it all she chose to share her breathtaking talent with the world. This newfound knowledge & understanding has made me appreciate Miss Franklin & her glorious music all the more and I'll be listening with an already high but now much deepened level of R.E.S.P.E.C.T 🙏
Just announcing to the world that I am finally taking a deeper dive into Soul. Loving every moment of this journey so far.

Genius brought me here. A flood of memories came by. I remember growing up in the 70’s I’m 51 now and my mom and aunties would be playing Ree-ree’s songs. I really forgot all of the beautiful music she made. Let’s all bow to the real Queen of Soul! I’m in awe of her life story and her music 🎶
