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.

Just saw the movie Respect, loved it but gotta see it again. Cried thru most of it. Grew up listening to this great woman and I'm from Detroit. It was all so personal to me. It felt like I loss my sister!

Just saw the movie with Jennifer Hudson playing Queen Aretha, made me search for her hits. What a talent Aretha was. She lives very much through her music. This was wonderful! Thank you for sharing!!

After watching "Respect", I now deeply understand her songs. I love how she used her voice to empower women. Such a great artist. Respect.
Saw Aretha at a little club in Philly in the 60’s. She sat at the piano, played and sang. The club held less than 50 people at individual tables. Boy, did she take off! Sistah Queen. She and I born same year!
Jeff G
Jeff G:
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😍
Dr. Kim
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!
A C:

She should be called now " The Immortal Goddess of Soul." What a beautiful lady and extraordinary voice.
Aretha Franklin Genius brought me here. I am a 63 yr. old white man who has listened to mostly rock music for 50 years, but always had time to listen to good R&B and Funk Music. Just appreciating the older artists like Aretha.. Better late than never...
Just announcing to the world that I am finally taking a deeper dive into Soul. Loving every moment of this journey so far.

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 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.
Caprice Gills
Caprice Gills:
Happy birthday to the Queen of Soul. I just watch her movie, Jennifer Hudson done a stellar job. Great movie and to know that she dealt with that type of abuse. Then it again you can hear her experiences through her music. She is a tough icon to follow, and Jennifer did exceptionally well. ❤️

How can you listen to this woman sing "Ain't No Way" and not feel like she is begging YOU personally to let her love make you into the greatest man you can be.... It's like God himself saying "I can't love you if you won't let me!" Angel from heaven.
