Who's Zoomin' Who?
Sep 12, 2006 - 02:14 PMAt 8pm on Thursday night, Aretha Franklin will perform at the McCallum. So cruise on over to the Freeway of Love, and catch Sister Re!
In 1987, Aretha became the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In 1999, she was awarded The National Medal of Arts by President Clinton.
In 2005, she received The Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Bush.
She has won 18 Grammy Awards, and currently holds the record--11--for the most Best Female R&B Vocal Performance wins (including 8 consecutive awards from 1968-1975... the first eight ever awarded in that category).
That's 'Retha Franklin
She don't remember
The Queen of Soul
It's hard times befallen
The sole survivors
She thinks I'm crazy
But I'm just growing old
