This is a piece of TV video from June 4, 1998 documenting when Aretha Franklin in 1998/1999 was added to a list of Americans who were considered some of the most influential People of the Century. The 20th Century was coming to an end as 1999 was a year away. That's why the list was made. The list was called the CBS News/Time 100 List (100 refers to the 100 people chosen to be on the list). This was a big honor for Aretha and she was on the cover of Time Magazine for achieving this distinction/honor. During this video clip, Aretha discusses a range of subjects dealing with her life in the music industry.
