The undisputed Queen Of Soul and supreme icon Mizz Aretha Franklin turns 70 today! And we at zomgtalk wish the epitome of Gospel-charged Soul a very happy birthday!
50 years in the business, 38 studio albums, 20 Grammy’s, 20 number one singles on the Billboard R’n’B Charts, 45 top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart (17 of which found a place in the top 10, and 2 at # 1), the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, Aretha Franklin’s flawless voice is the blueprint when it comes to vocal performances by everybody from the late Whitney Houston to Mariah Carey, from Christina Aguilera to Adele.
Truly a living legend. Thank you for the music Miss Aretha!
