Mrs. Franklin's real life story is very compelling. Too bad, she's not open to sharing ALL the details bcuz it would be a block buster!!!!!
A few tidbits: 1)Aretha's 1st born is said to be by her father, a preacher 2)Aretha use to needle pop 3)she was married to the actor from Cooly-High(glasses) who her 2nd born son claims molested him throughout that marriage

Legend...Job well done Queen of Soul. We don't disrespect our legends. That woman at her age can still out blow most of today's singers.
