In 2007, Franklin was honored at the Annual UNCF Evening of Stars and was presented with UNCF’s Award of Excellence.  She was named 2008 MusiCares® Person of the Year by the Recording Academy and she was presented with the prestigious NAACP Vanguard Award.  In 2010, she was inducted into the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame at the Apollo Theater.  In April 2012, Franklin received the TV Land Music Icon Award.
