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

The Queen of Soul died at the age of 76 earlier this month following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Other acts include Faith Hill, who will sing "What a Friend We Have in Jesus", Stevie Wonder's rendition of "The Lords Prayer", and Fantasia Barrino, who will perform "Precious Lord". "Her unrivaled singing voice helped her create timeless hits like "Respect" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" on her way to being rightfully crowned as the Queen of Soul. "I got in line at 4 p.m. on Monday". She'll then be laid to rest at Woodlawn Cemetery.

Owens told CNN the funeral service itself will pay homage to Franklin's gospel roots and her love of church. Robinson and Franklin grew up together in Detroit.

The world lost a queen and a bit of its soul with the passing of Aretha Franklin. 'I love her. She was my longest friend'.

In a statement at the time, her family said: "In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart".

Headliners included The Four Tops, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Angie Stone, while a gospel choir took everyone to church, rousing the crowd to their feet with an electric, upbeat performance of classics and a powerful rendition of "Amazing Grace" by Tasha Page-Lockhart.

Viewings earlier this week at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and at Franklin's childhood parish, New Bethel Baptist Church, as well as an all-star tribute concert held Thursday night, were all planned with the public in mind. She was dressed in a sparkling full-length gold dress with sequined heels for her final outfit - the fourth outfit Franklin has worn during a week of events leading up to her funeral.
