She later signed with Clive Davis' Arista Records.

Franklin canceled two concerts in March and April 2018, citing doctors' orders, after previously announcing in February 2017 she planned to retire from performing that year. Other hits included "Daydreaming" and "I Say a Little Prayer".

She remained with the label for a few years, before making the switch to Atlantic Records, where she achieved her commercial breakthrough with iconic songs including "Respect", "Think", "Chain of Fools" and "Ain't No Way".

In January 2009, she sang "My Country 'Tis of Thee" at the inauguration of President Barack Obama and her much-commented-on, oversized gray bow hat subsequently made its way to the Smithsonian Museum.

Franklin, who sang with matchless style on such classics as "Think, ' "I Say a Little Prayer" and her signature song, "Respect", announced her retirement from touring a year ago".

Aretha was born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1942 and was the fourth of five children. Known for her soul recordings, she also shone at R&B, jazz, blues and gospel music and was a songwriter and pianist as well as a singer. "And she just sounds so damn good".

She had not performed publicly since Elton John's annual AIDS benefit gala in November 2017. Her father, Rev. C.L. Franklin, was a pastor whose services were broadcasted in various television markets. Two decades years later she was back to pay tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records. Her father was a popular preacher and she grew up with gospel greats like Albertina Walker and Mahalia Jackson visiting her home. In 2014, Franklin reached a new milestone by becoming the first woman to have her 100th hit on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart with "Rolling in the Deep (The Aretha Version)". She died at 9:50 a.m.at her home in Detroit.

Franklin was married twice, to Ted White, who became her personal manager, and to actor Glynn Turman.

By 18, she had signed with Columbia Records and moved to NY, where her talents quickly brought her fame - and a title.

The singer also struggled with depression, alcoholism and her weight. I will be recording, but this will be my past year in concert. Her "Queen of Soul" moniker followed shortly after her initial commercial success. Her popularity stayed strong with "Freeway Of Love", and the George Michael duet "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)".

Perhaps she didn't need to be - it was all in her voice.

Franklin's songs, meanwhile, have been featured in countless films and TV shows during her decades-long career.
