It’s been a year of hard goodbyes and farewells to celebrities and music icons. The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, is one of the latest to be laid to rest.
Many know Franklin for her jaw dropping and eruptive presence through the late ‘60s and ‘70s. Her energy and passion will ultimately define that era of R&B, soul, and the gospel, if not the genres themselves. Her impact is rivaled by none, but what many don’t know about Franklin was her influence in the advertising industry. She worked with companies like Coca Cola, Pizza Hut, and many others over the past 50 years. While you may be bingeing on her top hits, see just how creative the Queen of Soul really was here.
