The “Queen of Soul” was twice placed ninth in Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and sold over 75 million records.
Here we celebrate the fact that, on January 3, 1987, she became the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but there are plenty of other reasons to remember this global superstar.
Aretha recorded 112 charted singles on the US Billboard charts, including 73 Hot 100 entries, 17 top ten pop singles, 100 R&B entries and 20 number one R&B singles.
Her roll call of honours includes the National Medal of Arts and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. But what we care about most is her music, and you can enjoy two Exclusive Radio stations dedicated to those wonderful songs.
