Ariana Grande will perform at Aretha Franklin's funeral

Even In Death, Aretha Franklin Isn’t Wearing The Same Outfit Twice

Aretha Franklin's body has been transported from a Detroit museum that hosted two days of public viewings of the Queen of Soul, the next step in a journey leading up to her funeral on Friday. Several high-profile artists will perform at the ceremony, including Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Ronald Isley, Jennifer Hudson, Faith Hill, Fantasia and Yolanda Adams, according to Rolling Stone. Since Franklin's August 16 death at 76, Owens said a close group she described as "Aretha's angels" have "worked tirelessly" and have been guided by a single question: "What would Aretha want?"After all she gave to the world, I felt we needed to give her an appropriate send-off that would match her legacy", Owens said".

An attendee listens to live music during a free tribute concert to the late Aretha Franklin at Chene Park in Detroit, Michigan, US.

After the funeral, Franklin will be entombed at Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit, along with her father, Rev. C.L. Franklin; brother Cecil Franklin; sisters Carolyn Franklin and Erma Franklin; and nephew, Thomas Garrett. "I don't think he'd come, but it would be appropriate if they did come".

The world lost a queen and a bit of its soul with the passing of Aretha Franklin.




Some of the meticulous details planned for the funeral include lining the streets of Detroit with pink Cadillacs, honoring both her hometown as well as her 1985 chart-topping hit by the same name.

On Thursday, she lay resplendent in a rose gold outfit and matching Christian Louboutin stilettos.

He said they 'talked all the time, ' the last just a couple weeks before she became too ill to speak. On Tuesday, she wore a red dress with matching heels and on Wednesday she was in blue.
