Aretha Franklin is the Queen of soul and she demands some R-E-S-P-E-C-T if you didn’t already know! What a fun performance from back in the day. Don’t you just love it?
Franklin was originally from Memphis, Tennessee but moved to Detroit at some point and is one of the highest regarded singers of all time. She’s had 112 singles which have graced Billboard’s various charts and has had 21 number one R&B singers.
“Respect” shot right to number one and has been heralded as a feminist anthem.
