About Aretha Franklin

Hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, Aretha would discover an early ear for music as she spent her early years practicing piano with her grandmother and other family members. She would be influenced by a pell mell of nationally influential figures who came to visit her father, a nationally famous preacher who was a religious celebrity across the country. The list of visitors included musicians such as Inez Andrew and Clara Ward, as well as larger than life figures Sam Cooke and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr..

Aretha's father would begin to understand her talent from a young age, and by the time she was a teenager she was a musical commodity that was singing all across the eastern and southern countrysides. She would record her first singles around this time, and would become an occasional member of carious traveling gospel groups such as The Soul Stirrers and The Caravans. By 1960, Aretha's musical career was blossoming as she signed onto Columbia Records, with a record deal that would groom her for monumental mainstream success. She would make her national debut in 1960 and never look back as she flew through the musical ranks to reach the highest echelons of soul and R&B recording legends.

Aretha's soulful serenades and catchy pop sensibilities would soon spill across national borders, building a monumental fan base that would pour into Canada and across the Pacific into Oceania. She would become a staple pop cultural icon, with appearances in Down Beat Magazine, on the popular TV shows Shindig! and Hollywood A Go-Go. With Columbia not able to sufficiently support her rising stardom, she would make the move to Atlantic in the late 60s and push her career to all new heights. By the late 60s she would pick up accolades galore, including a Grammy award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and the SCLC Drum Beat Award. The latter was awarded by none other than Martin Luther King, Jr., shortly before his death.

Further cementing herself as an international artist, Franklin would perform for England's Queen Elizabeth before trying her hand at acting, with an appearance in iconic blues inspired film The Blues Brothers. By the 1980s Aretha had been on top of the music scene for nearly three decades, but was showing no signs of aging or slowing down as she continued to release major platinum successes and top 40 hits. Over sixty years on she is showing no signs of slowing down as she remains one of the most successful artists in existence, with over forty studio albums released and a performance draw that still marks her as one of the biggest music acts around today.


Previous Hits

1967 would be the year of Aretha Franklin, with her release of I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You. The album would receive her first gold certification, and climb to #2 on the Canadian charts and Billboard 200, along with hitting the number one position on the US R&B charts. Under the production tutelage of Jerry Wexler, the album would receive perfect scores from the critics at Allmusic and The Village Voice, and spawn a multitude of singles that remain authentic and unforgettable pieces of Aretha's discography: "Do Right Woman, Do Right Man", "Baby, Baby, Baby", "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)", and the generation spanning mega hit "Respect".


Trivia

Aretha has received honorary doctorates in music from some of the most prestigious institutions in academia, including Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Berklee College of Music, and the University of Michigan. Bethune-Cookman College also appointed her as an honorary Doctor of Law.

Franklin would cover the 2012 mega hit "Rolling in the Deep", by famous british artist Adele. The single would be her one hundredth track to chart Billboard's Hot R&B and Hip Hop Songs chart.
