Watch Alicia Keys' Whitney Houston Tribute Performance - Video

Alicia Keys gave a touching performance of “Send Me An Angel” during Whitney Houston‘s funeral at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday (February 18).

Aretha Franklin canceled her performance due to illness.

“Regretfully, I am so sorry that I was unable to be with you at Whitney‘s service today,” the Queen of Soul said in a statement. “I had every intention of being there. But unfortunately I had terrible leg spasms and locked leg muscles until 4:00 a.m. this morning following my concert last night, which I’ve been having for the last few days.”

“I feel it necessary and very important to stay off my leg today as much as possible until concert time this evening. My heart goes out to my dear friend Cissy, Dionne, Bobbi Kristina and the rest of the family. May God keep them all. – Aretha & the Franklin Family.”
