Her emblems had been her growling contralto, her daring smile and robust cheekbones, her palette of wigs and the muscular, quick-stepping legs she didn’t shy from exhibiting off. She bought greater than 150 million information worldwide, gained 12 Grammys, was voted together with Ike into the Rock and Roll Corridor of Fame in 1991 (and on her personal in 2021) and was honored on the Kennedy Middle in 2005, with Beyoncé and Oprah Winfrey amongst these praising her. Her life turned the premise for a movie, a Broadway musical and an HBO documentary in 2021 that she referred to as her public farewell.
