The undisputed Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, was honored by the Board of Directors of the annual Billboard Woman in Music Luncheon as the recipient of their first Icon Award! The award is given to a female artist whose music has shaped the industry. The award bestowment comes a few short weeks after the star again made history as the first female artist to have 100 hits on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts!  “Hopefully I have, and I am setting an example and standard for younger singers as both a barometer and role model as a woman and an artist,” said Ms. Franklin, pictured here with singer Ariana Grande at the event. “I would love to see younger artists involve themselves more in their communities and in civic happenings. The younger generations are our leaders of tomorrow and the future of this country will eventually rest in their hands.”
