Aretha Franklin was born on March 25, 1942, in Memphis, Tennessee. She is an American singer, songwriter and musician. She sang in her father’s church as a child.

She gained the title “the Queen of Soul” by the end of the 1960s. Franklin recorded a total of 112 charted singles on Billboard. She has won 18 Grammy Awards and sold over 75 million records worldwide.

I think she is very inspiring. She has a very strong, beautiful voice.

I’ll be playing her song “Respect.” I chose this song because everyone deserves respect. Hope you can tune in!
