Franklin began singing at an early age in her father’s church, and he began managing her when she was twelve years old. He would take her on his “gospel caravan” tours where she would sing in various churches on the road, and he was also the one that helped her land her first recording deal, with J.V.B. Records. Her first single with J.V.B. Records, “Never Grow Old”, was released in 1956, followed by several singles that same year along with the album “Spirituals” (1956). She continued to sing and perform gospel music, and spent summers in Chicago on the gospel circuit there. She even went on tour with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when she was sixteen years old (she would later go on to sing at his funeral in 1968). However, when she turned eighteen, Franklin decided she wanted to purpose a pop music career.

Franklin’s father helped her move to New York, and also helped her produce the demo that would land her a record deal with Columbia Records, who signed her in 1960. Her first record with Columbia, the single “Today I Sing the Blues”, was released in September 1960, and eventually made it into the Top 10 of the Hot Rhythm & Blues Sellers chart. Franklin released her first secular album, “Aretha: With the Ray Bryant Combo”, in January 1961. The single “Won’t Be Long” off the album was her first single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. She went on to release several more albums with Columbia, but struggled with achieving real commercial success while at the label. After her contract expired with them, she moved to Atlantic Records in November 1966. Her first single with Atlantic, “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)”, was a huge hit and peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it her first top-ten pop single.
