About the Book

A stunning tribute to an American legend from Essence …

There are artists so exceptional and influential, who so dominate their art and age, that when they pass, we know we shall never see their like again. That's the case with Aretha Franklin.

A singer and musician of indescribable and unlimited skill, intelligence, and emotional power, she seemed able to touch almost anyone on earth and she made “soul” music central to world culture.

But she was more than a great artist and pop star. Born into the Civil Rights movement, she never ceased demanding “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” for all people. Over half a century she was a mythic presence creating the soundtrack to our personal and public lives.

Easton Press and the Editors of Essence magazine are proud to present, ARETHA FRANKLIN: The Queen of Soul, an exclusive leather-bound Collector's Edition.

“#1 Greatest Singer of All Time.”

Drawing on exclusive Essence magazine photographs and interviews from throughout Franklin's career, ARETHA FRANKLIN: The Queen of Soul documents the highs and lows of the great icon's personal life and professional career and her enduring impact on the world.

These pages revisit Franklin's roots as a musical prodigy growing up in the powerhouse family of her father, the charismatic Detroit preacher C.L. Franklin, surrounded by luminaries from gospel, pop, and jazz music and the Civil Rights movement – influences that would remain forever central to her life and art.

From the teenage gospel star and the Soul innovator of the 1960's to the ever experimenting diva who delighted the public and awed her fellow artists to the end, ARETHA FRANKLIN: The Queen of Soul celebrates the indomitable singer, gifted pianist, and brilliant arranger behind the unprecedented record of hits, awards, accolades, and honors.

Full of wonderful photographs and fascinating insights, ARETHA FRANKLIN: The Queen of Soul is the thrilling tribute to the great Aretha that only the editors and writers of Essence magazine could create.
