Aretha Franklin might not have been able to make Whitney's funeral, but wow did she pay tribute to her anyway!
Check it out — Aretha couldn't go to the funeral because she had to rest her legs for her show at Radio City Music Hall that same night.
So what did she do instead?
She gave an incredible rendition of I Will Always Love You for Whitney!
So beautiful, so intense!
We love it!
