If there is one thing that Aretha wanted to do, it was to perform. It is not a surprise that she wanted to perform even before her death but alas, it was not meant to be. Her last public performance was in the year 2017. It was for the 25th anniversary of Elton John’s AIDS foundation.
Even at her last public performance, she was able to show why exactly she is called the “Queen of Soul.” People were able to feel the emotions of the song. It cannot be denied that no one can sing it like she does. Her performance was enough to make Elton John tear up. Even those who were watching had a tear or two because of her performance.
