The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin paid tribute to her goddaughter Whitney Houston during a private concert at Charlotte's McGlohon Theatre on Feb. 13, 2012. Franklin, who appeared as a part of the Music with Friends series, performed here just two days after the death of Houston, who was found unconscious in a hotel bathtub. The cause of death is still pending a toxicology report.

During the show, Franklin sang "I Will Always Love You."
