Jim Carrey Pays Tribute to Aretha Franklin with New Painting'Look How Beautiful a Life Can Be'More

Ariana Grande made a surprise performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, to pay tribute to legendary soul singer, Aretha Franklin, following her death on Thursday, 16 August.

Fans mourning the death of Franklin left balloons, flowers and mementos at Detroit's New Bethel Baptist Church, where as a child the star kicked off her storied career singing gospel.

Franklin died Thursday at age 76 from pancreatic cancer. Beyond her constantly played classics, like "Respect" and "Say a Little Prayer", her oft-dismissed early Columbia output is great ('One Step Ahead' is a personal favourite), as is some of her stuff from the early to mid-1970s. (Just reading those titles, don't the choruses just pop straight into your head?) She was the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

"She did incredible music, incredible singer".

"I get on the phone and I'm like oh my gosh I can't believe this is this really Ms. Aretha Franklin", she wrote. "It's sad, and for the past couple of days, people have been going to see her and reaching out to her. All of our other friends that we grew up with were gone".

Lewis Hamilton, whose love of music is well known, added his voice to the chorus of tributes that have poured in for Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. "Her voice was unique, her piano playing underrated - she was one of my favourite pianists", John said, in part. However, just hours after her passing, reports started to surface that Franklin's partner of thirty years and her sons are already at war over her $80 million fortune.

But for the most part, she goes undetected.

It was revealed this week that the Respect chart-topper was "gravely ill" in Detroit. Her closest relatives are planning a 4-day celebration of her life, which will include an open casket memorial service open to the public at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. "I don't want you to get sick!'"
