It’s another award for Aretha Franklin, even nine months after her passing.
She’s won a Pulitzer Prize….an award usually given to journalists.
It’s called a Pulitzer Special Citation. Only 41 of them have been given since 1930, and the Queen of Soul is the first woman to be awarded one. Past winners include George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, and Bob Dylan. This will go with her 18 Grammys, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, among many other accolades.
