Aside from leading the way for future generations of female pop stars, Madonna has accomplished so many milestones throughout the course of her career. Talk about a female leading the way. In her lifetime, Ella Fitzgerald recorded over albums, and with 14 Grammy Awards under her belt, in addition to over 40 million albums sold, she is more than worthy of the title, "First Lady of Song. Ella was the first African-American woman to win multiple Grammy Awards — and it happened at the very first Grammy Awards ceremony in And, in fact, the only other women to win a Grammy that year were opera singer Renata Tebaldi and pop singer Keely Smith.
But that's not all. Today, the Super Bowl Halftime show has become a star-studded spectacle, but it wasn't always that way. And Ella was one of the first stars to headline the mid-way point of the big game. They performed a tribute to Louis Armstrong , who had passed away the year before.
Aretha Franklin. The awards and honors Aretha has received throughout her career are endless, but perhaps one of the most important came in Though most of the Rock Hall inductees are male, Aretha was the first female of the now 44 women who have been inducted in the last 30 years. Her impressive vocal range is just one of her many unique qualities. But what's more than that, Mariah has helped set trends that are common in music today. Carey, a pop singer, embraced hip hop in the early stages in her career, teaming up with rappers on many of her songs — something that happens all the time today.
Speaking of songs, Mariah has written many of her own, clearing a path for more females to take pen to paper themselves. In fact, as of a few years ago, Mariah had written the most No.
And it is her songwriting skills that gifted the world with the now classic Christmas song, "All I Want For Christmas. For many years Kesha went without releasing music because of all that he had endured during her Dr. Luke lawsuit. But, finally, in she was able to drop a new album — and the most inspiring part of it is, she never gave up. And because she has been brave enough to speak her truth and come forward with her story, not only via her platform but also with her music, she has inspired many to do the same, including many of her fellow pop stars.
Many in the music industry came to Kesha's aid when she needed it, featuring her on music as Zedd did, or banding powerful females together to publicly support her like Lady Gaga, Lorde , Lily Allen , Kelly Clarkson , and Taylor Swift. But in addition to their support, these fellow musicians were inspired to use their platform to spread awareness, which is imperative for keeping the conversation going to hopefully achieve change.
And in the current landscape, where the conversation surrounding sexual harassment and gender equality are at an all-time high, Kesha's impact on the industry and on people personally has been tremendous. Dolly Parton is an American treasure, but even more than that, she is one of the most inspirational females in music. In an extremely male-dominated genre like country music, Dolly is one of the most-honored female country performers of all time. In addition to all of her Gold, Platinum, and Multi-Platinum records, Parton has been inducted into 15 different Hall of Fames, and has been nominated for 46 Grammy Awards, and is tied with Bruce Springsteen for the most Grammy noms overall they are both in 10th place.
But Dolly has also helped inspired female musicians in several different genres to be the leader of their own careers, Kesha being one of them. In fact, "I Will Always Love You," famously covered by Whitney Houston , came out of a moment of empowerment and taking control when she left syndicated TV program The Porter Wagoner Show where she really got a kickstart, and took her career to the next level.

Popular music as an element of culture and its effects on social behavior. Musician and writer Del Rey unearthed an exciting array of guitarists from parlor music to bebop. She dug through archives, interviewed family members and scoured the Internet for the stories and music of these unjustly neglected musicians. The exhibit incorporates text biographies of women guitarists in American popular music with ten 20 x 24 inch photographs.
Accompanying the photographic exhibit is a video of rare archival film shorts showing the work of Mary Osborne, Mary Kay, Rosetta Tharpe and others.
