美国“灵魂歌后”艾瑞莎·弗兰克林病逝 享年76岁

Aretha Franklin, the American singer known as the "Queen of Soul," died Thursday at her home in Detroit, Michigan. She had spent many years battling cancer. She was 76 years old.

被誉为“灵魂歌后/灵魂乐第一夫人”的美国歌手艾瑞莎·弗兰克林周四晚在位于密歇根州底特律市的家中去世。她与癌症抗争多年。享年76岁。

Franklin was born on March 25, 1942, in Memphis, Tennessee. But she was raised in Detroit. There, her father C.L. Franklin was a church minister. Her musical talent was recognized at a young age. She played piano and sang gospel music at her father's church services.

弗兰克林,1942年3月25日出生于田纳西州的孟菲斯,但她是在底特律长大的。她的父亲 C.L. 弗兰克林是该地教会的一名牧师。她的音乐才华在她很小的时候就得到大家的肯定。她在其父亲所在的教堂里演奏钢琴并唱福音音乐(美国黑人的一种宗教音乐)。

Franklin began singing pop and jazz music at age 18, when she signed a recording agreement with Columbia Records.

弗兰克林18岁与哥伦比亚唱片公司签署唱片协议,并开始演唱流行音乐和爵士乐。

But her real success started in 1967 under an agreement with Atlantic Records. That agreement permitted her to sing with her natural gospel intensity.

但她真正成功却始于1967年一份与大西洋唱片公司的协议,该协议允许她以她自然的福音强度演唱。

Franklin gained national fame that year with a series of hit music recordings, including "Chain of Fools," "A Natural Woman," and her most famous hit, "Respect."

弗兰克林在那一年以一系列大受欢迎的音乐单曲享誉全国,比如《傻蛋一箩筐》、《不加做作的女人/ 天生女子》以及她最有名的代表作《尊敬》。

Franklin's career success continued into the 1980s and 1990s. She appeared in the 1980 film "The Blues Brothers." She also had new music hits, including "Freeway Of Love" and "A Rose Is Still A Rose."

弗兰克林在事业上的成功一直持续到二十世纪八十年代及二十世纪九十年代。她曾出演1980年电影《蓝调兄弟》。她同样还出过新的热单,包括《爱情高速》以及《玫瑰仍是玫瑰》

Franklin earned more than 110 entries in Billboard magazine's music charts. That is the most by any woman in the magazine's history. In 1987, Franklin became the first woman to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

弗兰克林入Billboard排行榜的奖项超过110项。这是该杂志有史以来由女性获奖最多的一个记录。1987年,弗兰克林成为首位入选摇滚名人堂的女性歌手。

Franklin struggled with weight and health problems. But even in her older years, her voice remained a thing of wonder.

弗兰克林与体重和健康问题作斗争。但即使在她的晚年,她的嗓音依然保持令人惊奇的(音色)。

In 2009, she sang the American patriotic song "My Country 'Tis of Thee" at U.S. President Barack Obama's first inauguration.

在2009年美国总统巴拉克·奥巴马的第一次就职典礼上,她演唱了美国爱国歌曲《我的祖国》。
