One of the greatest singers of all time passed away of pancreatic cancer on August 16, 2018. But of course, the Queen of Soul's legacy would live on. Most recently, that's meant a scripted limited series—'Genius: Aretha.'
Tony, Emmy, and Grammy award winner Cynthia Erivo will play Franklin. You can expect to hear many of the icon's biggest hits on this anthology series, which in previous seasons told the stories of Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein.
