Taylor Swift honored Aretha Franklin with a moment of silence during a concert in the Queen of Soul’s home.

Swift told the sold-out crowd at Detroit’s Ford Field on Tuesday that Franklin did so much for music, women and human rights. Swift said that words could never describe how many things Franklin did that make the world a better place.

The pop-star asked for a moment of silence so that “each of us can give of our love and respect for her.” After asking for the lights to go out, Swift said: “We love you Aretha.”

The public pays respects to Franklin during a two-day viewing in a museum in Detroit.

Franklin, who died on Aug. 16, will be laid to rest on Friday.
