Aretha Franklin net worth & biography:

 

It has been claimed the musician Aretha Franklin net-worth has an estimate of 60 million dollars. Aretha Franklin is actually a singer, performer and song-writer. In addition, she is a recognized pianist within the United States which also helps to collect the complete number of Aretha Franklin net-worth.
She is mostly known as a soul music vocalist and sometimes is referred to as the “Queen of Soul”. But she’s also experimenting with several other music genres for example blues, jazz, rock, RnB and gospel. Based on the Rolling Stones magazine, Aretha Franklin holds the first position in the list of the 100 Greatest Singers ever. Furthermore, she is in the 9th position within the record of the Greatest Artists within the Background of Music, that was also made by the Rolling Stones magazine.

Aretha Franklin Net-Worth – 60 Million Dollars

Her career within the music industry has been properly appreciated. She’s known as a recipient of 18 Grammy awards and of two Honorary Grammy awards. In addition, her 20 singles landed in the number one place of the Billboard RnB charts. Two singles of the singer landed in the first place of the Billboard Hot Top 100 list. These singles include “I Knew You Were Waiting For Me” and “Respect”. The income of these also increased the total level of Aretha Franklin net-worth a great deal. The one “I Knew You Were Waiting For Me” was a duet with George Michael.
She is also known as one of many female artists whose RnB albums landed in the highest positions of the Billboard chart. In 1987, Aretha Franklin’s name was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame which made her to be the first female singer whose name was inscribed in it. Consequently, singing is really one of her principal occupations which provide millions of dollars to the total amount of Aretha Franklin net-worth.
She was born in Memphis, TN, but when she was a couple of years old, she moved as well as her family to Buffalo. It was there where her parents divorced. When Aretha Franklin was 10 years old, her mother died. Therefore, she was taken in the attention by her dad who worked for a Baptist minister. Aretha Franklin was mainly raised by her grandma. She began singing and also taught herself the way to play the piano from her ear, when she was only a child.
