Fox News Catches Heat After Mixing Up Aretha Franklin & Patti LaBelle

17 Août, 2018, 05:53 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Franklin had been in the music industry since the 1950s.

The multi-time Grammy Award victor performed a rousing rendition of "America the Beautiful" at WrestleMania III and again at WrestleMania 23. Producer Jerry Wexler had the good sense to put her voice and piano at the center of a kicking Southern rhythm section, stand back and let her be.

The first woman ever to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the legendary songwriter, singer, and civil rights activist has also made important contributions to the art of shade. "She took you to church even if she was singing about a no-good man".

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) said her music would inspire people for generations.

Civil rights activist Reverend Jesse Jackson - who was Franklin's friend for over 60 years - told USA Today she helped pay for many civil rights tours and campaigns while King was alive.

She was married twice and had four sons, first giving birth when she was 12 years old.

The soul icon sang the "Star-Spangled Banner" before Game 1 of the 1993 World Series between the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies, and she thrilled with the song again in front of a packed house before Game 3 of the American League Championship Series between the Detroit Tigers and Texas Rangers in 2011. Born in Memphis and raised in Detroit, Aretha Franklin grew up performing gospel songs in her father's congregation.

A Rolling Stone reviewer said Franklin "sings like never before on record" on that live album. We were witnessing the greatest soul artist of all time. A 1986 duet with George Michael, "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)", hit number one in several countries.

"She was our sister and our friend". She was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2005.

That was the former president, Barack Obama, who released a joint statement with his wife Michelle praising the legacy of the woman known as the "queen of soul". That same year, Detroit named a street after her.
