‘Queen of Soul’ Aretha Franklin dies at the age of 76

17 Août, 2018, 10:16 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

In 1956, Aretha debuted her first album Song of Faith.

The singer, whose career has spanned seven decades, died at her home in Detroit, Michigan, at 9.50am on Thursday, her publicist said.

The photo is from LaBelle's 2014 performance of "Over The Rainbow" for then-President Barack Obama. "She took you to church even if she was singing about a no-good man". She passed away at home in Detroit from advanced pancreatic cancer.

Franklin had been in the music industry since the 1950s. She was given a great gift from God - her voice, and she used to well.

Through the influence of her parents and strict upbringing, Aretha's first encounter with music and the stage was in the church where she sang and led the choir at the least opportunity. When she does that time at the Fillmore West, she's singing basically hippy rock music to an audience of hippies. Thank you for your compassion and prayers. Her father supported her transition and was very instrumental in her 1960 record deal signing with Colombia records.

"Critics always talked about the gospel feeling in Aretha's voice so it was a very big deal when she finally made a proper gospel album like "Amazing Grace, '" Carpenter said".

Elton John is among the many mourning his friend Aretha Franklin's death Thursday. Franklin won two Grammys for the song, and an honorary award from Martin Luther King Jr.

As she rose in popularity, Franklin did not abandon her sense of activism.

Clara Ward, of the Ward Singers, and Mahalia Jackson were among Franklin's mentors.

From her earliest recording sessions at Columbia, when she asked to sing "Over the Rainbow", she defied category. "It certainly has sustained me to this day".

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. "And Smokey said, 'Well, they just don't know who your healer is'". She was the first female artist to be admitted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and had 88 Billboard chart hits during the rock era, more than any other female vocalist. "I will be recording, but this will be my a year ago in concert", she said. Today, it has been referenced and sampled in dozens of feature films. "I'm feeling wonderful, I'm feeling great and I couldn't be feeling any better than I'm feeling right now", she assured Williams without getting into specifics.

Franklin, who had battled undisclosed health issues in recent years, had announced her retirement from touring last year.
