Ariana Grande happened to be a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the day one of her idols, Aretha Franklin died. And the pop star paid tribute to Franklin by performing her hit “A Natural Woman.”
Grande was a big fan of Franklin, whom she met a few times. “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?'”
In doing her tribute, Grande joined millions of celebrity and regular fans mourning the loss of the Queen of Soul.
