Being the granddaughter of a legendary singer won’t necessarily win you a golden ticket on “American Idol.”
Grace Franklin, whose grandmother is the late Aretha Franklin, learned that after she auditioned for the singing competition.
The 15-year-old appeared in Sunday’s episode of “Idol” and sang the Lauryn Hill version of the Roberta Flack hit “Killing Me Softly,” as well as her grandmother’s hit “Ain’t No Way.”
In a video interview on the show, the younger Franklin said she was very close to the Queen of Soul, who died in 2018 at the age of 76.
