    Aretha Franklin: The Queen of Soul documents the beloved singing star’s rocky personal life and internationally acclaimed show business career. An in-depth and frank examination of Aretha, this definitive biography traces her career from her beginnings as a 12-year-old member of a church choir in the early 1950s, recording her first album at the age of 14, a major recording contract at 18, and stardom in her 20s, right up through her headline-grabbing 2010 health scare, to her triumphant return: singing to her cheering Detroit hometown fans in summer 2011.

    Here's the straight (and not-so-straight) scoop that every Elton John fan has been waiting for - from the addictions, toupees, affairs, and scandals to the triumphant later years. Elton John has sold over 200 million records and has more than 56 Top 40 singles. He has won five Grammy awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a Tony. Rolling Stone ranks him number 49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. Yet no book published in the US has so successfully captured the passion and complexity of Elton John's life, much less his music.

    Whitney Houston (1963-2012) was a superstar. Few in the world of show business reach the career heights that she attained with what seemed such ease. Her megastardom peaked in 1992 with the release of the hit movie The Bodyguard and the international number-one hit "I Will Always Love You". The movie soundtrack still stands as one of the best-selling albums of all time. She won six Grammy Awards, two Emmy Awards, thirty Billboard Music Awards, and twenty-two American Music Awards, and amassed a vast fortune. Her death has shocked the entertainment world and her fans.
