Some people asked why didn't they ask Alicia Keys, Christina or best yet... Kelly Clarkson who did one of the best covers of Natural Woman I have heard... to perform at Aretha Franklin's funeral. Maybe cause they don't have managers that make it happen. This was a prime position to be in and the Queen's funeral as millions watched.

The bigger picture is that they where setting her up for a huge tour that was coming in 2019.  Ariana Grande is coming to Buffalo.  She'll perform her 'Sweetener' world tour on March 22 at the KeyBank Center. Below is here performance at Aretha's funeral.
