Aretha Franklin Opens Up About Heartbreak

By Brooke Benjamin

Queen of soul Aretha Franklin broke onto the music scene in the early 1960s and has since become one of its most honoured artists to date. Despite her lengthy career, Franklin has always managed to keep her personal life relatively private but recently gave Access Hollywood a rare look into a past relationship. The music legend, while speaking of her unreleased album, describes the angst she endured from a heartbreak and admits that it served as the sole inspiration to the very personal track How Long I’ve been Waiting.
