Aretha Franklin, dubbed the queen of soul, earned her title after dazzling the music world for the duration of her exceptional music career.

On her Instagram page, Victorie, 20, shared a warming post where she let fans know she has been thinking about her legendary grandmother. The young adult put her feelings into creativity as she flaunted her vocals in a short clip. She captioned the post:

"Lately, my grandmother has been on my heart so heavy. Everything in my life holds her reflection, and it makes me miss her…"

Victorie donned a yellow hoodie while she left her hair in its curly mass. The only visible jewelry on the youngster was a nose ring. While slow music played somewhere in her room, she carried off a smooth tune as she paid tribute to her grandmother.



It is evident that the 20-year-old holds many beloved memories of her garandmother close to heart. For Victorie, Franklin's death was a shocker. After her passing, Victorie shared a pleasant video where the late Queen of Soul was in her element.

In those times, she took Victorie under her tutelage and also recorded music with the youngster.


The video, which was taken a few months before her death, showed Franklin at home with her piano while she sang in low tones. Victorie did not hold back on praises and her heartfelt words as she captioned the video:

"...Words can't describe the pain I'm feeling, but God is telling me that she is at peace."



Millions of fans across the world recognized Franklin as a pacesetter and pioneer in music. However, for her family, the late matriarch was a family woman at heart. 

During the first anniversary of her death, Franklin's family spoke beautifully about her. Albeit their cherished memories of the iconic singer, her family was thrown into a dilemma following her death. 

It happened that three of her wills were found, resulting in confusion as to which is the authentic document. However, Franklin's son, Kecalf Cunningham stated that there was no cause for alarm.

While she was alive, Franklin and her granddaughter, Victorie were an inseparable duo. In those times, she took Victorie under her tutelage and also recorded music with the youngster.
