She is said to be being mentored by her famous grandmother Aretha Franklin.

And on Saturday night, Victorie Franklin took centre stage as she performed Tamela Mann’s “Take Me to the King” at the BET Honors event.

The budding star looked pretty in a floor-length gown with jeweled detail.

Also performing that night was Mariah Carey, so Victorie was certainly in good company.

Aretha has been giving Victory one-on-one vocal coaching and she thinks the youngster has a big future ahead of her.

The Respect singer said recently: ‘She’s coming along very well. I came down to see her rehearse, and she brought tears to my eyes.’

As well as Aretha, also receiving tributes at the awards was Motown founder Berry Gordy, rapper-actor Ice Cube, American Express chairman-CEO Ken Chenault and photographer and video artist Carrie Mae Weems.

Others who performed at the show included Jennifer Hudson, Janelle Monae, Tamar Braxton and Smokey Robinson.

Artists Ludacris and Mack Wilds, Scandal actor Joe Morton and activist/talk host Rev. Al Sharpton were tapped as presenters.

Proceeds from BET Honors’ limited ticket sales will benefit the Women Veterans Interactive, an organization that provides housing options and support for veterans and their families.

The special will air on BET on February 24.
