You Have To See Ariana Grande's Emotional Tribute To Aretha Franklin
There's been a massive outpour of tributes from the countless artists that Franklin influenced over the duration of her career that lasted for over half-a-century, but Ariana Grande was given the honour of a tribute performance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Performing a belting rendition of Franklin's hit '(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman', we dare you to try not to burst into tears while watching this.
In fact, it's being reported that Grande, while she held it together for the beautiful performance, broke into tears the moment she exited the stage.
Grande also spoke to Fallon about meeting Franklin, who was one of her idols.
"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."
She then shared this photo in tribute to the legend on social media.
