Ariana Grande

With the recent passing of Aretha Franklin, Ariana Grande felt it was only right to pay tribute to the Queen of Soul with a tribute performance.

Ariana Grande, who was a guest on the Tonight Show the same day that Aretha Franklin died, decided to cover one of Aretha Franklin’s most memorable songs “Natural Woman.”

In the past, Grande has expressed how influential Aretha was to both her life and career.  “We sang at the White House, and she was so sweet,” Grande said. ”And she was, like, so cute. And I was like, ‘How are you a real person?'”

“I met her a few times,” Grande said. “We sang at the White House and she was so sweet, she was so cute and I was like, ‘How are you a real person?’ It’s an honor to have met her.”
The pop star also shared a photo of herself with Franklin on social media.
