The Internet Is Mercilessly Dragging TF Out Of This Opening Singer At Aretha Franklin’s Funeral

"...But she ain’t got no business singing THIS song at THIS funeral."

Published August 31st

The entire music world is gathering together for the celebration of life and homegoing services of the iconic, groundbreaking vocal legend Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin.

The service brings forth the biggest names from all corners of Hollywood and the entertainment industry, both young and old, both close and far, and all sharing one love for the late R&B and soul vocalist, including Al Sharpton, Ariana Grande, Bill Clinton, and many more. First up on the mic to honor Aretha is country singer and producer, Faith Hill. Now, leading off vocals for the extraordinary, mass-crowded funeral for a musical legend like Aretha is no simple feat, but the Mississippi country songstress took it on anyway.

Unfortunately, not everyone agreed with that decision.

  1. While some viewers plugged their ears at Faith’s rendition of ‘What a Friend We Have In Jesus’…
  2. Others defended her against the ruthless dragging the internet had waiting for Faith after she left the stage
  3. See a snippet from the performance (featuring Al Sharpton), below
