Aretha Franklin is one of the giants of soul music. Her astonishing run of late-’60s hits with Atlantic Records — “Respect,” “I Never Loved a Man,” “Chain of Fools,” “Baby I Love You,” “I Say a Little Prayer,” “Think,” “The House That Jack Built,” and several others — earned her the title “Lady Soul,” which she has worn uncontested ever since.

Franklin, the daughter of prominent Minister C.L. Franklin, began her singing career singing in her father’s church at the age of ten and started recording four years later. After several years in the gospel circuit and with her father’s blessing, she formed a music career at the age of eighteen, signing with Columbia Records where she was branded by its CEO  as his most important act since Billie Holiday.

Aretha Franklin became the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall
