Talent obviously runs in Aretha Franklin’s family — and Grace Franklin proved it by delivering a stunning rendition of her grandma’s favorite song.
The late music icon’s 15-year-old granddaughter joined Jennifer Hudson at the “Respect” premiere Wednesday — where the duo stunned onlookers by singing their hearts out.
The Oscar winner, 39, is playing the Queen of Soul in the biopic out Friday. Hudson shared a clip on Instagram of herself and Grace singing on the red carpet while both rocked gorgeous sequined gowns.
“Grace Franklin sings ‘Ain’t No Way’ at ‘Respect’ premiere,” the Chicago native captioned the snap to her 3.2 million followers. “What better what to celebrate Aretha Franklin than for her granddaughter @gfranklin61 to sing her song at the film premiere? She would be so proud!”
“I’m so happy to see my grandmother honored in such an amazing way,” Grace said before she started to sing. ” ‘Ain’t No Way’ is my favorite song from my grandma, so I hope y’all enjoy it!”
