Ariana Grande took part in Aretha Franklin's funeral service with a rendition of the hit "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman in Detroit on Friday. Ariana hit it out of the park and the people at the service agreed. The MC told the crowd after Grande was finished, "Girl, I gotta give you all your respect.” Then he asked, “did you all enjoy this icon?" The audience responded with cheers.
Grande was at the service with her fiance Pete Davidson. Before the ceremony, she talked with former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

This isn't the first tribute Ariana has done for Aretha Franklin. She also covered the song on the Tonight Show with the Roots.
Aretha Franklin is and will always be the Queen of Soul. It is so nice to see artists like Ariana pay tribute to the amazing woman Aretha was and her fantastic music.
