According to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace ,  In 2009, Aretha Franklin was named the #1 Vocalist of All Time by Rolling Stone magazine.  Her ever-distinctive, soulful, to-the-bone vocal style has graced music charts for over four decades and her ‘live’ performances have touched the hearts of tens of millions since she began her musical journey in Detroit as a singing child prodigy.

It is her rich legacy of recordings that are a testament to the power, majesty and genius of this one-of-a-kind artist of the first order. 

Aretha Franklin has earned countless international and national awards as well as accolades and global recognition on an unprecedented scale. 

She is a 2005 recipient of a Presidential Medal of Freedom honor (the U.S.A.’s highest honor), a Kennedy Center Honor, the American National Medal of the Arts Award, 18 GRAMMY® Awards including Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for eight consecutive years, a GRAMMY Legend Award, a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award, and five American Music Awards. 

In 1987, she was the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 1979, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2007, Franklin was honored at the Annual UNCF Evening of Stars and was presented with UNCF’s Award of Excellence. 

She was named 2008 MusiCares® Person of the Year by the Recording Academy and she was presented with the prestigious NAACP Vanguard Award.  In 2010, she was inducted into the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame at the Apollo Theater.  In April 2012, Franklin received the TV Land Music Icon Award.
