Aretha Franklin: Close-Up (1968) | A Must See!

1968 TV news special chronicling the extraordinary rise of Soul singer Aretha Franklin. Features tons of candid footage at Atlantic Records recording studios with Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd and first husband Ted White; being presented an award by Martin Luther King; backup vocal and dance rehearsals with her sisters; appearance at a teen dance show; interview with her father CL Franklin about her gospel roots. This documentary can be found elsewhere on YouTube in full color, however this B&W print has better audio and has been rendered in 720p HD.  I do not control the rights. Shared for historical purpose
