Céline Dion Blows Crowd Away with Stunning Version of Aretha Franklin's 'A Change Is Gonna Come'
Céline Dion shone during the special tribute on TV for Aretha Franklin playing "A Change is Gonna Come". The Grammy winner looked wonderful wearing a black and yellow outfit.
The vocal performance of the 50-year-old singer was impeccable, making the audience enjoy a version of the success of Aretha Franklin's 'A Change is Gonna Come' in the celebration for the Queen of Soul Aretha! A Grammy Celebration, on March 10.
The fans of the artist offered several rounds of applause for her perfect vocalization during the show. She looked stunning with a set of pleated silk and a belt that emphasized her waist and elegant silhouette.
Once she finished her interpretation tribute to Aretha the singer made a reverence to the public.
The iconic song 'A Change is Gonna Come' was written by the renowned artist, Sam Cooke, for the first time in 1964. Aretha who died last August at age 76, recorded her own version in 1967. Over the years she has been interpreted by Otis Redding and Greta Van Fleet.
Other artists also sang during the television special in honor of Aretha, such as Yolanda Adams, Shirley Caesar, Alessia Cara, Brandi Carlile, Chloe X Halle, Kelly Clarkson, Common, HER, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monáe, SZA, and BeBe Winans.
Winner of 5 Grammys herself, Céline Dion for this tribute to the Queen of Soul took a break away from her residence in Las Vegas.
Aretha and Céline had known each other for years and together with Mariah Carey, Gloria Estefan and Shania Twain participated as main artists in the first show VH1 Divas 20 years ago in 1998, playing together “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.”
After having to cancel a number of shows last year to undergo and recover from surgery, she is finally back in the place she feels most at home: on the stage.
In March 2018 Celine Dion announced that she would have to pull out of a few weeks’ worth of shows due to a middle ear condition known as Patulous Eustachian tube, which causes hearing irregularities.
