Ariana Grande Pays RESPECT To Aretha Franklin With Moving Tribute

Aretha Franklin died at her home in Detroit

The 18-time Grammy award victor inspired multiple singers during her six-decade career from pop diva Mariah Carey and the late Whitney Houston, to Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Mary J Blige, and the late Amy Winehouse.

Musician Jon Batiste said the parade of music and cultural pioneers shaped a young Aretha Franklin. I enjoyed her at the White House.

As Aretha Franklin is remembered for her music, she's also being remembered for her role in the civil rights movement. "She was a great woman, with a wonderful gift from God, her voice".

Given Aretha Franklin's incredible talent and the generations of people who loved her, Obama obviously wasn't the only big name to humbly pay their respects after learning of her passing. Grande did a great job embodying the soul behind Franklin's song, and we're sure Grande's performance made Franklin proud. "Aretha Franklin, in my opinion, stylistically and musically, "gave birth" to female singers such as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige, among many others".

"It's hard to conceive of a world without her".

It was at a Knightdale dance recital in 2015 when Johanna Colon heard the Queen of Soul and stole the show.

"What better place to put her body - in a place that embodies what our people have stood for, what we have endured", Belle said. Although Aretha sang at the event, called In Performance at the White House: Women of Soul, she doesn't appear to have shared the stage with Patti.

Franklin - an 18-time Grammy victor with a clear, rich voice able to span musical genres - influenced generations of singers with unforgettable hits including "Respect" (1967), "Natural Woman" (1968) and "I Say a Little Prayer" (1968). She simply captioned the video 'Rest in Peace QUEEN Aretha.

Her last performance was at an Elton John AIDS Foundation event in NY in November.

"Joined by The Roots, the pop superstar opened Thursday's show with a cover of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman".

He said on Friday that he wanted the public to remember her not only as an artist, but also as an activist and an important figure in the African-American community.

"Sitting down across from her just a few years ago, I was just about speechless", Lemon said before playing a clip of his sit-down with the Queen.

TMZ said that initially Ariana told them she couldn't do it because she was too emotional in the wake of Franklin's death.
