Published February 20, 2014

The granddaughter of Aretha Franklin, Victorie, performed Tamela Mann’s “Take Me to the King,” a tribute to the Queen of Soul at the 2014 BET Honors February 8. The special airs on BET February 24.

Many in the audience were wondering if Victorie is the next Aretha Franklin and they also felt she was the highlight of the show. Aretha has been giving her one-on-one vocal coaching and she believes Victorie has a big future.

Aretha said, “Victorie is coming along very well. When I went to watch her in rehearsals it brought tears to my eyes.” Aretha’s son Kecalf also performed on the special. Others on the special included Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, Janelle Monae, Smokey Robinson and host Wayne Brady.
