    She is so effing talented. I'm sad that Victoria Justice was starring Victorious, Ariana is more talented than her. Ari and Liz are pure talent her voices were so underrated, now ariana is killing it and liz still underrated

    I like how she realized she went a lil flat at 2:55 and was like nah lemme try that again at 3:09 and nailed it 💛

    This is so epic

  • Reply TaylorMonee August 24, 2019 at 2:15 pm

    It’s so ironic how for years I could always envision Ariana singing this song and she ended up singing this exact song at Aretha’s funeral

  • Reply Lynsey Timmons August 25, 2019 at 4:45 pm

    I love this performance so much. Ari did so amazing with it.

  • Reply kiriakoz August 26, 2019 at 10:44 am

    Pretty good, but not anywhere near as good as the original. Nice tribute though. Let alone Aretha singing this whilst playing the piano!

    I love her voice but do not prefer her music (not saying it’s bad). I wish she would just make more genuine stuff, a voice like that deserves it. NO HATE.

    Ari did amazing as always

  • Reply A P October 5, 2019 at 9:55 pm

    Ariana loves to play w harmonies and change notes up so that they don't sound the same like in the song. You can hear it in her sweetener tour videos. She didn't do that here. She sang it like Aretha. And that's what a tribute is supposed to be like.

    Can someone just please help me. I want to give her a hug since i was 6 years old. This year ( 23th August 2019) was the first time i saw her. And i am 14. It was in Amsterdam. And i know, some people aren't able to even go to her shows. But besides that. She is a freaking Queen. Her voice is heavenly and so beautiful. Can i please give her a hug one time. And if that isn't possible.. i wanna give her something i wrote for her. I wrote it with a message that i wanted to say since i was 6 years old. I live in the Netherlands. And i never been in America. So if i have to go to America, girl I'm in. I come were ever you want me to be. I only want a hug, or give her a little notebook i made her myself. Just please and i will never say something. Then my life is good forever. Love u everybody 🖤 and Jimmy ofc cuz he's my King👑
