Aretha Louise Franklin

Singer, Songwriter, Pianist, "Queen of Soul"

Being the Queen is not all about singing, and being a diva is not all about singing. It has much to do with your service to people. And your social contributions to your community and your civic contributions as well.

—Aretha Louise Franklin
