Watch Aretha Franklin Accept Best R&B Vocal Performance At The 14th GRAMMY Awards | GRAMMY Rewind
Queen Of Soul Aretha Franklin has 44 GRAMMY nominations and 18 wins to her name, winning her very first in the '60s at the 10th GRAMMY Awards.
By 1972, she'd racked up a few more, but that didn't stop her from looking delighted as she took home the golden gramophone for Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female for her classic cover of "Bridge Over Troubled Water."
In our latest edition of GRAMMY Rewind, you can watch Aretha herself accept the award from fellow soul singers and GRAMMY winners The Temptations, who dance their way up to the podium to present the coveted award. Check it out above.
Before she passed away last year, Aretha left a musical legacy like none other. She was the recipient of the GRAMMY Legend Award and the Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award, her philanthropy was recognized with the 2008 MusiCares Person Of The Year honor and many of her recordings have been inducted in the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame.
