movement, and is often considered as one of the best songs of the
R&B era, earning her two Grammy Awards in 1968 for "Best Rhythm
& Blues Recording" and "Best Rhythm & Blues Solo Vocal Performance,
Female", and was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1987.

it to the National Recording Registry. It was placed number five on
Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It
was also included in the list of Songs of the Century, by the Recording
