Franklin Is a Gift from God

In the ranking of best singers of all time from the American magazine Rolling Stone, Aretha is in the first place. “Aretha is a gift from God”, according to the music magazine in 2010. “She is the reason why women want to sing.”

In 2015, Franklin managed to stir up the then American President Barack Obama with her rendition of (You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman, which she sang during the annual Kennedy Center Honors Gala in Washington D.C.
