Aretha Franklin is a legendary singer, who has had an extremely long and successful career. Aretha's father Rev. C.L. Franklin played a big role in the 1963 march in Detroit. Aretha now opens up about her father, admitting that she admires the role he played in the freedom walk.
Aretha Franklin in her younger years
 
Franklin explained, "Many pastors whom he invited to our home to discuss it were not on board. They didn't think it was such a good idea." Aretha was living in New York at the time, fulfilling her commitments to Columbia Records, "I had never been away from home. He was monitoring all, and he did come into New York to oversee how things were going."
 
Franklin then went on to add, "It started with Mahalia Jackson, who was a great friend of my dad's. Harry Belafonte called Mahalia, and she called my dad. He had his vision, and yes it was under his control. It was his vision of what he wanted to be, and of course … it set the stage for the march (on Washington)."
