Aretha Franklin came out to sing at the wedding of a high-profile gay couple in New York on Sunday night (23Oct11), four months after the state legalised same-sex marriages.
The music veteran was the star guest as the former Intrepid Museum president Bill White married his longterm partner Bryan Eure at Manhattan's Four Seasons restaurant.
Franklin performed a number of her hits at the reception, including I Say A Little Prayer and Respect, and she ended her set with a rendition of I Will Always Love You, according to the New York Daily News.
