Statements regarding Aretha Franklin

on August 16, 2018 - 11:13am

Statement from Craig Kallman, Chairman & CEO, Atlantic Records and Julie Greenwald, Chairman & COO, Atlantic Records:

“Aretha Franklin was a pillar of Atlantic Records and transformed global culture. From that day in January 1967, when producer Jerry Wexler took Aretha to Muscle Shoals, Alabama and she sat down at the piano to record her first Atlantic record, 'I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You),' music was never the same. Back then, there was no one who sang the way she did, who took the roots of gospel and R&B and infused them with that originality, power, fervor, and depth.
