The singers honored the Queen of Soul with a powerful performance.
Andra Day, Fantasia, and Yolanda Adams delivered for the final moments of the 61st annual Grammy Awards.
Though the tribute was surprisingly short, the singers honored the late legend with a powerful performance of the song. The trio graced the stage during the “In Memoriam” segment of the ceremony and performed a rendition of Frankin’s 1967 hit “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.”

Aretha's family has to have picked these 3. No way the Grammys made this decision

Aretha Franklin is one of the most if NOT the most decorated, talented, influential artists in the history of music.
The Grammys gave her a ONE song tribute. Trash #Grammys

Having a separate Aretha tribute after J Lo dedicated the Motown tribute to her is something.
