Her career began as a child, singing in a small gospel choir in Detroit. But Aretha’s heart — and soul — were meant for much more. Her voice moved us all, stirred our own souls, inspired us, and as former President Barack Obama said, “helped define the American Experience.”

She was known for iconic hits such as Respect, Chain of Fools, A Natural Woman, and so much more. Aretha enjoyed a long and successful career in the music industry, recording more than 40 studio albums and winning 27 music industry awards — including 18 Grammy Awards.
