The Motown Queen

18 Oct

Beyonce might be the Queen B to some, but for us Detroiters there is only one Queen — Aretha. Photojournalist Linda Solomon captures her talent and artistry in The Queen Next Door  just published by Wayne State University Press.

Solomon is an award-winning photojournalist with a non-profit foundation Pictures of Hope, providing cameras to children living in shelters.

She developed a trusted relationship with Franklin and documented her career. From Christmas parties to birthday bashes to recording sessions, this is a personal portrait of a Motown legend. Yes, the Pink Cadillac is prominent.

You just gotta have R-E-S-P-E-C-T!

    I am not from Detroit and I love Aretha, but my heart belongs to Ella.
