Aretha Louise Franklin, March 25, 1942
Music royalty Aretha Franklin was born on March 25, 1942 in Memphis, Tennessee. The “Queen of Soul’ has enjoyed a successful career that has spanned over fifty years and at 70 years old she doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.
She started singing in her father’s church in Detroit and in the 60’s, she released her first single and the rest is history. Aretha Franklin has a timeless voice and people from many different generations can relate to her soulful sound. Recently she had a battle with her health, but after taking a little time off she is slowly but surely regaining her throne.
Aretha became “The Queen Soul’ in the 60’s…and she’s still reigning today!
Happy Birthday Queen!
One of my favorite songs by Aretha, ‘Natural Woman’
