DETROIT, Mich. (WILX) - Aretha Franklin is set to receive the Pulitzer Prize Special Citation Honor on Tuesday.

She will become the first individual woman to earn the honor since it was first awarded in 1930.

The Queen of Soul was also the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in 1987.

A new documentary film titled "Amazing Grace" features a young Aretha singing gospel music.

That film is in select theaters in Metro Detroit right now.

Franklin died last August at 76.
