A Tribute to Aretha Franklin: The Queen of Soul

  • CostFree

The Greensboro Public Library pays tribute to Aretha Franklin. Celebrating a true musical icon, this event will feature film clips and recordings of The Queen of Soul. The community is invited to share thoughts and memories of Franklin’s influence in their lives.

Born in 1942, Franklin began singing gospel music in the Detroit church where her father was a minister. At the age of 18 she started her secular singing career and in 1967 signed with Atlantic Records. She achieved commercial success with songs like "Respect" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman". Earning a total of 18 Grammy Awards in a decades-long career, Franklin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
