      Aretha Franklin. Aretha Franklin is one of the giants of soul music, and indeed of American pop as a whole. More than any other performer, she epitomized soul at its most gospel-charged. Her astonishing run of late-'60s hits with Atlantic Records--"Respect," "I Never Loved a Man," "Chain of Fools," "Baby I Love You," "I Say a Little Prayer," "Think," "The House That Jack Built," and several others--earned her the title "Lady Soul," which she has worn uncontested ever since.

In a recording career that has spanned over half a century, Franklin's repertoire has included gospel, jazz, blues, R, pop, rock and funk. Franklin is known as one of the most important popularizers of the soul music genre and is referred to as the Queen of Soul, a title she was given early in her career.

      Aretha Franklin - "I Say a Little Prayer" -- The Beatles & Stones reinvented pop & rock music with new standards, but they also obliterated the entire black soul music genre. Let's just call it white flight, the musical version. I wish the "Golden Age" of soul music had lasted longer.
