    Thank you Jennifer for your contribution to Aretha. You have an amazing voice and when you were singing I could feel/see the Holy Spirit shining through you. I can definitely tell you have had some bad things happen to you and you turned to God in times of pain and sorrow.

    I just lost my son. To gun violence at the hands of 2 cowards and he has a 11 month old son who turn 1 on the 30th of august so i celebrated both in the same month .my son was 24 getting ready to go to China to play basketball .The funeral was on the 25th .Here In Maryland you have be in th he cemetery by 2:00 .They want all their
    Money before the service they call me to tell me the day before the burial that I had not paid yet .I told them money would be there before 8:30 the day of his funeral. Do you all think that I care about a service for a woman who has 80 million $$$ in cash. THE funeral nothing was Godly about this funeral they EDIFIED their selves .I didnot watch it .chakakan performance was sad. SHE HAD TO LOOK AT A FAN TO KNOW THE WORDS TO THE GOSPEL SONG SHE MESSED IT UP SO BAD .SAT DOWN .SOME OF THE CLERGY ON STAGE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASHAMED . SO YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT BECAUSE AREATHEA FRANKLIN WAS A CELEBRITY, I AM GOING SELL MY MORALS TO THE DEVIL. JUST TO BE ON TV.THE BIBLE SAYS WHAT PROPHET A MAN OR WOMAN TO GAIN THE WORLD AND LOOSE THEIR SOUL.DONT LET YOUR GOOD BE EVIL SPOKEN OF. HOW MANY SOULS WERE SAVE DURING ALL THESE HOURS .DOES JESUS KNOW ??THE BIBLE SAYS MY PEOPLE PERISH FROM A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE .WHY ON EARTH WOULD THEY CHANGE A CORPS CLOTHES. THIS WAS JUST IGNORANT. IF GODS PEOPLE PARTICIPATED IN THIS FOOLISHNESS YOU JUST AS WORST AS THE PEOPLE WHO DONT KNOW GOD .AT THIS POINT HER LIFE SHOULD HAVE SPOKE FOR ITS SELF SHE IS NOT IN THE CASKET BECAUSE HER SPIRIT IS GONE SO WHO WAS ALL THIS DONE FOR ???? MY SON FUNERAL WAS WAY BETTER THAN THIS CIRCUS .IT WAS A LOT OF PEOPLE THERE .PEOPLE DONT HEAR WHAT YOU SAY FROM SEEING WHAT YOU DO .FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL .TRUST GOD AND LEAN NOT TO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING .THANKS LAMONT WILLIAM ADAIR JR ,TREE ,MONTY, INSTA GRAM KING TREE 93_ MOM DARLENE .THE MESSAGE PREACH THIS DAY WAS GOD GIVES US A 2ND CHANCE .WHAT MESSAGE DID YOU ALL GET FROM HER PARADE .

    Listen to Aretha sing it and tell me her version isn't more beautiful and touching:

    That is how you sing it.

  • panthero
    panthero 17 days ago

    It's funny, I wonder if all of the people saying she did an incredible job have even heard Aretha's version. I think people have a tendency to think every performance by an excellent vocalist is excellent. Jennifer got caught up trying to outsing the other singers of the day and ended up screaming 90% of the song. You don't blow every word at full blast.

    • panthero
      panthero 12 days ago

      You can have a great voice and still ruin a song. It's like drag driving at top speed through a cemetery - there's a time and place for everything. She tried to outsing all of the previous singers of the day. Like I said before, listen to Aretha's version of the song and you will see how it's done.

      panthero Chile her voice is natural powerful pay attention to her eyes she couldn’t contain herself

  • Salim The Barefoot Sage

    Personally, I think that just as Fantasia took off her shoes to sing for Aretha, Hudson should have done the same. Especially since she was doing Amazing Grace. The very album on which the Queen of Soul is seen barefoot on the cover.

  • WC

    I've noticed the camera wasn't focused on MINISTER FARRAKHAN, only when (she) hugged the christian pastor's. she didn't hug MINISTER FARRAKHAN, due to rebelliousness n ignorance. Lots of these christian's r rebelliousness n towards ISLAM, due to ignorance.

  • WC

    She didn't even hug MINISTER FARRAKHAN. And, that's the major problem with some christian's they're so rebellious. qnd ignorant toward's ISLAM.

    Far better than Ariana Grande... Not trying to make a comparison where needed but the views on each video tell us all. The music industry has a serious issue with colourism. Jenner Hudson is a far better choice than Ariana. Whilst Ariana has powerful vocals, they just aren't quite as mesmerising as Jennifer's. She absolutely owned this song. Aretha would be proud.
