(CBS/AP) The Queen of Soul is adding another jewel to her crown.
Aretha Franklin is one of six people who'll be inducted into the Hall Gospel Music Hall of Fame on Aug. 14 in Hendersonville, Tenn.
She'll be joined by bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs, family group The Hoppers, contemporary Christian singer Dallas Holm, the late TV evangelist Rex Humbard and Christian rock band Love Song.
Franklin's gospel roots run deep, starting with her father who was a prominent Baptist minister. Her 1972 album, "Amazing Grace," has sold over 2 million copies and is one of the best-selling gospel albums of all time. Three of her 18 Grammy awards were for gospel categories.
This is only the latest in a long list of honors for the 70-year-old singer. In 1987, she was the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and roll hall of Fame. She also is among Rolling Stone magazine's list of 100 best singers of all time.
The Gospel Music Hall of Fame was established in 1971. More than 150 members have been inducted, including Dolly Parton and Elvis Presley.
