She didn’t earn the title “Queen of Soul” for nothin! The daughter of notable minister C.L. Franklin, she began singing in her father’s church at 10 and began recording as a teenager. At 18, she decided to try R&B, racking up many hits such as “Never Loved A Man (The way I Love You),” “Respect,” and “Chain of Fools.” She then briefly switched back to release the gospel album “Amazing Grace” in 1972 which still holds the title as best-selling gospel album of all time. Ms. Franklin went on to efficiently release about 20 more albums, each blurring the lines of gospel and R&B/soul with her wide, soulful, emotional vocals.
