      Bio

      From Wikipedia:
      Aretha Louise Franklin (born March 25, 1942) was an American soul, R&B, and gospel singer, songwriter, and pianist born in Memphis, Tennessee, but raised in Detroit, Michigan, USA. She was called for many years "The Queen Of Soul", but many also called her "Lady Soul," as well as the more affectionate "Sister Re." She was renowned for her soul and R&B recordings but was also adept at jazz, rock, blues, pop, gospel, and even opera[citation needed]. She was generally regarded as one of the top vocalists ever, due to her ability to inject whatever she may be singing about with passion, soul and sheer conviction. Franklin was the second most honored female singer in Grammy history after Alison Krauss. Ms. Franklin won nineteen competitive Grammys (including an unprecedented eleven for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, eight of them consecutive), and the state of Michigan declared her voice a natural resource.

      Franklin had two number one hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100, "Respect" in the 1960s and her 1980s duet with George Michael, "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)", and many of her singles hit Top 20, Top 10, and Top 5 positions. Franklin was one of three acts to peak at each of the top 10 positions of the Hot 100, the others being Marvin Gaye (if counting duets with Tammi Terrell) and Madonna. She enjoyed both critical and commercial success as a solo artist.
