Beyoncé took a moment this week to honor Tina Turner by performing one of the late legend's classics.

While on her Renaissance World Tour in London, Beyoncé paid tribute by delivering a beautiful rendition of Turner's 1966 classic "River Deep - Mountain High."

You can watch the emotional performance below.

While this was Beyoncé's first vocal performance honoring Turner, she did honor the icon in other ways last week upon learning of her passing at the age of 83.

Viewers of the "Crazy in Love" singer's heartfelt tribute acknowledged Beyoncé's audible grief.

They commended her for so beautifully honoring her hero.

The Grammy winner first temporarily updated her website to display a photo of herself onstage with Turner performing together at the 2008 Grammy's with the message:

“My beloved queen. I love you endlessly. I’m so grateful for your inspiration and all the ways you have paved the way."
"You are strength and resilience. You are the epitome of power and passion."
"We are all so fortunate to have witnessed your kindness and beautiful spirit that will forever remain. Thank you for all you have done."

Additionally, the "Halo" singer honored the Queen of Rock and Roll in the wake of her passing by sharing some heartfelt words onstage in Paris, telling the audience:

“If you’re a fan of mine, you’re a fan of Tina Turner. I wouldn’t be on this stage without Tina Turner."
"I want you guys to scream so she can feel your love. I feel so blessed that I was alive to witness her brilliance."

Just beautiful, all of it ❤️.
