Ariana Grande Added To List of Performers at Aretha Franklin’s Funeral
Ariana Grande has been added to the roster of musicians that will perform at Aretha Franklin’s funeral.
This comes after Grande’s emotional performance of Franklin’s “Natural Woman” on Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel. Franklin’s family was so impressed with her performance that they asked her to perform at the Queen of Soul’s home going services.
Franklin died earlier this month at the age of 76 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
Grande joins a growing list of performers for Franklin’s funeral, including Stevie Wonder, Faith Hill, Jennifer Hudson, Pastor Shirley Caesar and The Clark Sisters to name a few.
Franklin’s funeral will take place Friday at 10 a.m. ET at Greater Grace Temple in Detroit.
