Aretha Franklin's granddaughter shared an intimate homemade video of the Queen of Soul playing piano at her home just months before she died. 

A few hours after Franklin's death on Aug. 16, Victorie Franklin posted the video on her Twitter account .

"I have many memories of me coming into her home and she would be playing the piano and singing,"  Franklin said in her tweet. "Words can’t describe the pain I’m feeling, but God is telling me that she is at peace. Today we lost an icon, a legend, but today I lost my grandma. I love u and imma make u proud."

The 18-year-old is the youngest daughter of Kecalf Frankin.
