Gr 7 Up--Gourse chronicles the personal life and musical development of the multidimensional singer, whose voice and music have been influenced by blues, gospel, soul, and jazz. The daughter of a Baptist minister, Franklin made her first gospel recording at age 14; by age 18, she had signed with Columbia Records. Information is included about her troubled marriages and legal problems. This detailed and well-written book meets a need for solid biographies of famous African American women. It will also appeal to students of music and history looking for an interesting, well-researched title. Well-reproduced black-and-white photographs add visual interest.
