Ariana Grande Pays Tribute To Aretha Franklin By Beautifully Singing 'Natural Woman'

Ariana Grande Pays Tribute To Aretha Franklin By Beautifully Singing 'Natural Woman'

She had already released Respect, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman and Think.

But, Porter adds: "The fact of the matter is, she never lost the ability to communicate". She was given a great gift from God - her voice, and she used it well. Here is a look back at her iconic life and career.

On Thursday Patti paid her own moving tribute to the I Say a Little Prayer singer.

The public viewing and funeral service dates for Aretha Franklin have been announced. "The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins knew no bounds", the family's statement read.

Franklin's death certificate confirms that she died at 9:50 am, while also revealing that she will be entombed at Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit.

Trump's comments contrasted with the standard tributes honouring Franklin. Her talent transcended genres and not only earned her the title of the "Queen of Soul" but also the distinction of being the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. "When I tell people, if they really want to hear how spirit can be transferred, then they should listen to the Amazing Grace album". She touched every genre, every singer was influenced in some way by the way she sang. However, just hours after her passing, reports started to surface that Franklin's partner of thirty years and her sons are already at war over her $80 million fortune. The story doesn't do much to honor Franklin's legacy.

Tracking the QB responses to Jalen Ramsey's trash talk
He's good! Jalen Ramsey thinks Jared Goff is good! Still, it's better than what Ramsey said about a lot of other quarterbacks. You can't tell me you win MVP two years ago, and then last year, you a complete bust, and you still got Julio Jones?


"She was a highly political singer", Ritz said. "I enjoyed her at the White House [for the Women in Soul event]".

The celebrated musician passed away Thursday morning at the age of 76 in Detroit, USA, surrounded by her loved ones.

"Today I join my community, my industry and the world in mourning the loss and celebrating the life of my dear sister, friend, and ally, Aretha Franklin". "The world is poorer for her not being here", he said.

Other hits include Day Dreaming (1972), Jump To It (1982), Freeway Of Love (1985), and A Rose Is Still A Rose (1998). A 1986 duet with George Michael, "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)", hit number one in several countries.

Sources close to the Franklin family have told the online publication that the memorial will be open casket.
