Three powerhouse voices took to the stage to tribute the late Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, at the 61st annual GRAMMYs Sunday.
Andra Day, Yolanda Adams and Fantasia Barrino-Taylor brought soul and emotion to the stage to tribute Franklin in an incredible rendition of “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.”
When the emotional tribute was done, the audience jumped to its feet in approval of the singers, all of whom clearly gave it everything to honor Franklin’s legendary career.
Aretha Franklin passed away on August 16, 2018 at 76 years old from pancreatic cancer.
Adams, Day and Barrino-Taylor all performed at Franklin’s Detroit funeral last year. According to reports, Franklin had pre-approved the three women (and all other performers) for her funeral before her death.
