The season 20 premiere was held in American Idol On Feb. 27,Aretha Franklin“Son of a granddaughter Grace FranklinHad a performance sweeter than honey. With a smile on her faces, the 15 year old entered the audition room and began to introduce herself to the judges. Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

Grace, a Detroit native explained that Grace was very close to her grandma. I got to visit her every day. “I used to go on many trips with her.”

And to her, Aretha’s superstardom—she was awarded with the Grammy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 1994—was hardly relative. “I don’t think I could fully grasp that she was known worldwide,” she admitted, “cause to me she was always just ‘Grandma.'”

However, she does not want the name of her family to influence what you think. Before you start singing Lauryn HillThe young singer sang “Killing Me Softly” and said that she felt like everyone expected her to sound exactly the same as her. I am my artist. My voice is mys.”
