Last night, Ariana was already scheduled to be on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ – however, she was not planning on performing, until she arrived and was asked if she could sing ‘Natural Woman’ as a tribute to Aretha.
Initially, Ariana declined, saying she was too emotionally affected and didn’t think she’d make it through the performance.
One of the guys from The Roots was able to get her to come around, and her tribute was absolutely beautiful.
Afterwards, she went backstage and broke down in tears. </3
