One of the giants of American music, Aretha Franklin has released more hit singles than any other female singer in recording history. Dubbed the "Queen of Soul," she has recorded numerous successful albums in a wide range of genres, including gospel, rhythm and blues, American standards, and pop. In 1987, she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Aretha Franklin's life story is an inspiring account of the evolution of popular music, of a woman determined to shape her career on her terms, and of a child prodigy whose voice continues to thrill and amaze audiences. Read about this remarkable musical pioneer, from her struggles to her successes, and how she continues to influence new generations of singers in Aretha Franklin: Singer.
