Ariana Grande Honors Aretha Franklin With a Breathtakingly Beautiful Performance at Her Funeral
Aretha Franklin's family and friends all gathered at Detroit's Greater Grace Temple to celebrate the life of the Queen of Soul on Friday. Among them was Ariana Grande, who paid tribute to the late icon with yet another beautiful performance of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman." The 25-year-old star sang in front of a chorus of gospel singers and received a standing ovation after finishing the song. Grande was accompanied by fiancé Pete Davidson, who stuck by her side and held her hand throughout the funeral.
Aretha passed away on Aug. 16 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Her funeral also included performances by Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Jennifer Hudson, and Faith Hill.
