Taylor Swift Pays Tribute to Aretha Franklin at Detroit Concert

Taylor Swift took a moment to honor the late Aretha Franklin during her Reputation Stadium Tour show on Tuesday night.
The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, passed away earlier this month after suffering from advanced pancreatic cancer at the age 76. She currently lies at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. Taylor remembered her while she was performing in Aretha’s hometown.
A source revealed that Taylor was at the Ford Field Stadium, and took to the stage to celebrate Aretha’s legacy just before opening the third act of the concert.
The 28-year-old American singer called Aretha an irreplaceable force. She went on to praise her by mentioning how much Aretha actually did for music, for women’s rights, and for civil rights as well. She was one of those people about whom any glowing positive thing said was an understatement. Taylor went on to say that words could never, ever describe how many things the singer did in her life that made this world a better place.
The crowd cheered when Taylor said this on the stage and she called her fans for a moment of silence for the Queen of Soul. The singer stayed silent for almost a minute and then concluded. After that, she performed her next song, Delicate.
Aretha’s funeral will take place on Friday at the Greater Grace Temple in northwest Detroit. There will be an all-star memorial concert, which will include the famous singers Ariana Grande, Stevie Wonder and Faith Hill.
