Beyonce

Nominations: 70

Best songs: Bills Bills Bills; Love on top; Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)

It is hardly necessary to mention how confident Beyoncé is in the music industry. Having created two hits in 1999 with Destiny's Child (Bills, Bills, Bills and Say My Name), in 2003 Beyoncé began her solo career by releasing her debut album Dangerously in Love. The performance of Beyoncé and Prince in 2004 was awarded a Grammy, and this year the singer claims four awards at once, including the nomination “Best Musical Film” for the “Lion King” of 2019.

Barbra streisand

Nominations: 46

Rewards: 8

Best songs: Evergreen (from A Star Is Born); Don’t Rain on my Parade

During her sixty-year career, the singer, actress, songwriter and director managed to do a lot. Barbara Streisand won the Grammy, Oscar, Emmy and Tony Awards, and received her first Grammy in 1963 for her debut album, The Barbra Streisand Album. The actress was invited to the Hall of Fame four times, but her potential goes far beyond music: Streisand is an activist in the field of protection of gay rights, was a member of the Women's March in 2017, and also donated to many foundations to combat the climate crisis.

Aretha Franklin

Nominations: 44

Rewards: 18

Best songs: Respect; Chain of Fools; A Natural Woman (You Make Me Feel Like)

The undisputed soul queen, who died in August 2018, has been working hard since the 1960s, but it was her words for the song Otis Redding’s Respect that made her work mainstream, providing the Grammy Award in 1967. Franklin got into the Hall of Fame thanks to five compositions: Respect; Chain of Fools; Amazing Grace A Natural Woman (You Make Me Feel Like) and I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You. Aretha Franklin was also a philanthropist and activist; many of her songs brought about social change, including Respect, which became the anthem of civil rights.
