Ask Aretha Franklin
She hardly needs an introduction -- in fact, she doesn't even need a last name. Aretha, the Queen of Soul, burst onto the scene in the 1960s, when she signed with Atlantic Records to release hits like “Chain of Fools,” "Respect" and "Natural Woman." She appeared on the cover of TIME in June 1968. In 1987, she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She has won 18 Grammy awards and performed at three presidential inaugurations, including Barack Obama's in 2009.
