Channel 4 respond to criticism over controversial Michael Jackson documentary 'Leaving Neverland'

By NME Magazine

Aretha Franklin was honored during the 2019 Grammys telecast with a special performance of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” from Andra Day, Yolanda Adams and Fantasia.

Day started the performance, with Adams and Fantasia sweeping in to belt out their lines of the Queen of Soul’s classic anthem. The powerhouse trio closed the song by wailing through the outro, all finishing in perfect unison to a standing ovation.

Franklin was one of several artists remembered in the telecast’s In Memoriam segment, which also paid respects to Mac Miller, Avicii, James Ingram and Carol Channing, among others.

The music legend passed away last August after a battle with cancer last August. She was 76.
