When Ken Ehrlich, the longtime producer of the Grammys and other awards shows, worked with the Obama administration on a concert honoring women at the White House, first lady Michelle Obama laid down one rule.And so Franklin – a longtime friend of Ehrlich – was added to the 2014 "Women of Soul" bill, which included Patti LaBelle, Ariana Grande, Janelle Monae and Tessanne Chin. That moment was just one of the magical moments Ehrlich helped orchestrate with Franklin over the years.Ehrlich quickly started running through the many performers on hand who could fill the time – he first thought of asking Stevie Wonder to do something amazing, as Wonder is known to do. But then Ehrlich recalled Franklin had performed at a tribute concert to Pavarotti two nights earlier, and sung "Nessun Dorma". Ehrlich produced other Grammy shows and events that featured Franklin performances.Ehrlich said no matter what happens in music, Franklin will always be the model that singers and musicians would look to for excellence.
