The Sims 4 Career: Queen of Soul Career
PLEASE NOTE: You WILL need the newest Neia Career Commons file (included in download) also!
So… obviously this career is based on a real person. A great person… the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. I ADORED Aretha. If you love her as much as I do, maybe you’d like to have her walking around your town, living her best Sim life forever. Maybe (like I did as a kid) you wanted to BE Aretha. There will only ever be one Queen of Soul, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pay your own tribute in Sims right?
The text from this career comes almost entirely from her Wikipedia entry, minus the dates. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aretha_Franklin
The pay levels are utterly ridiculous by EA standards… unless you happen to be a Platinum selling heritage artist like Aretha Franklin. They’re researched against current annual earnings for similarly successful artists and are realistic.
With all of that said, I hope you enjoy…
Aretha Louise Franklin (March 25, 1942 August 16, 2018) was an American singer, songwriter and pianist. She began her career as a child singing gospel. During her career she won 18 Grammy awards and is one of the bestselling artists of all time, having sold over 75 million records worldwide. Aretha Franklin received numerous honors throughout her career including a 1987 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in which she became the first female performer to be inducted. She is listed in at least two all-time lists on Rolling Stone magazine, including the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, and the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.

I did not in ANY way base this on any other career.
It’s 100% my own creation (and you know Wikipedia’s… kind of) and a LOT of work went into it. So…
Thank you so much in advance if you decide to try Queen of Soul. I hope you enjoy having a little Aretha in your game.
