© Don Hunstein, 1960

After signing with Columbia Records in 1960, Aretha Franklin was weaving her gospel musical roots into a jazz-influenced pop-oriented sound inspired by artists like Sam Cooke and Dinah Washington. In August 1960, when Don Hunstein took this early photo of the future queen of soul, Aretha Franklin was 18 years old, her lifetime of hits still on the horizon.


SUSAN BRANDT BLACHLEY STAFF PICK Young Aretha captured in this stunning black and white photo by Don Hunstein. She looks so dreamy sitting at the piano, a lifetime ahead of her to become the Queen of Soul. I love how the tilt of her head and coiffure are in sync with the shape of the microphone.
