Ariana Grande Belts Out Emotional Tribute to Aretha Franklin
August 17, 2018
Ariana Grande belted out Aretha Franklin's "Natural Woman” on “The Tonight Show” Thursday to pay tribute to the iconic soul singer. Grande was hesitant because she was afraid she might get emotional, according to reports. On “The Late Show,” Stephen Colbert paid tribute to Franklin by playing her entire blockbuster Kennedy Center Honors performance from 2015, which he hosted. During her performance, President Barack Obama wiped a tear from his eye.
