    Whitney Houston's mother 81-year-old Cissy Houston, who sang back-up for Franklin in the 1960s, was among the singers.

    Franklin, 72, has an upcoming classics tribute album, and "Rolling in the Deep" made the cut.

    Franklin dips into perfect classics, like Etta James' "At Last" and Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive."

    Must feel pretty good to have a legend cover your music.
