Whoopi Goldberg Is On A Mission To Grant Aretha Franklin's Dying Wish

By B. Miller

Tuesday morning marked the premier of the 22nd season of the morning talk show, The View. During the episode, longtime host Whoopi Goldberg reflected on her experience at Aretha Franklin's recent funeral. Now she has a favor to ask of viewers.

Whoopi began with jokes about the length of the funeral, even quoting her favorite meme:

It's been picked up for next season. That's how long it was.

She discussed Ariana Grande's dress, which many felt was too short. (She did not mention how Bishop Charles H. Ellis III groped the side of  Grande's breast.) She also clarified that Aretha's family asked Grande to sing "Natural Woman."
