Aretha Franklin, The Queen Of Soul by Mark BegoAretha Franklins soulful voice has earned her fifteen Grammies and the honor of being the first woman inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. An uncompromising survivor, Aretha has stirred millions with her classic hits, including I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You) and Respect. But she has also faced daunting personal challenges: her mothers desertion; teenage pregnancy; several unhappy marriages; and a tragic shooting that led to the death of her father. With unique access to key figures in Arethas past, and a new chapter revealing the most recent events both personal and professional in the life of the diva, this is the definitive biography of the woman who captivated the music world of the early fifties and became a star.
Bridge Over Troubled Water
Request of the Week May 13, The SteynOnline Request of the Week was a weekly feature at this site for 11 years until the beginning of , since when it's been on hiatus.

Instead, I'd like to request that you re-post the article you wrote about Paul Simon and how his giving "Bridge Over Troubled Water" to Art Garfunkel to sing ultimately drove a wedge between them. Well, as I said, our Request of the Week department isn't really in business anymore, but, since you're a paying customer, I don't feel we can really refuse.
